    It once was a toss-up at the bottom of the food chain: airline food or airport food?
    Times have changed. Some airlines are offering nutritious items in the air, and airports are increasingly featuring local restaurants with high-quality, healthy food.
    "Airports are trying to improve the experience for travelers, and part of that is bringing in restaurants serving fresher, local foods," says Rick Lundstrom, editor in chief of PAX International, a trade magazine that covers airport dining trends. "Airports want to create an atmosphere of the city they're in and make the airport more of a destination for shoppers and diners."

    Can't disagree food is much better now a days, but this line "Airports want to create an atmosphere of the city they're in and make the airport more of a destination for shoppers and diners." supports my own thoughts that airports are just becoming like short term shopping malls lately...whcih again, OK by me, I just get the same feeling lately.
