New Terminal
« on: February 04, 2018, 01:24:48 PM »
As reported on KTLN the New Terminal opens in April (should?) . I hope they have learnt from the current terminal which I found as airports go pretty unattractive and unwelcoming...badly laid out , poor lighting and a ceiling that never looked finished. Having spent a vast sum I wonder if the prices will have increased as well to offset unit costs? ::) Not many of us like airports but sometimes we have to spend longer in them than we would like so the nicer the better ;)

I know what you mean Blue Lizard, a horrible old building not fit for purpose, but I shudder to think what the already exhorbitant prices will be like in the new terminal!!

In fact its not 'an old building' its was the new built one. The old one is now the brand new one. But agree the.lighting is just terrible due to high costs of electricity the comfort is abysmal, the food/ drinks prices outrageous.

Don't you just long for the days when flying was treated as a sort of luxury, where service, courtesy and an endeavour to make your journey as pleasant as possible was the norm? (try looking at pictures of 50s airports…)

Now the passenger is treated as a means to an end, that of making as much money as possible, both by the airport and the airlines themselves, without doing anything unless you pay extra. (And don't even get me started on Security personnel attitudes, especially at some UK airports >:D)

Happy travellers? In your dreams (and old movies!).

Perhaps, maybe, we should do our own private charters from the 'executive' side of the airport?

Better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid than to open it and remove all doubt :)
