Oh the things kids will do to entertain themselves......
Of course being a complete airline dork I had to look up the airport. In case anyone cares: PRG.
How'd you do that? There is so little in the background.
They announced an Air France flight in the video, it goes PRG - CDG.
Though if you do want to test your airport detective skills, try here.
Ahh... I had the video on mute.
Rats...and I was hoping to post a pithy comment
Used to bring a book.
This year it's a notebook with free wifi & browse the 'net.
Welcome to MP. I just gave you your first like for your first post.
Drink at the lounge. Does this even have to be mentioned?
One night at ZRH I wandered the airport, made houses of cards, and had fun with the automatic escalators.
I have to embrace my inner child. Every time I'm at SIN I make a beeline for The Slide @ T3 after check-in, and have at least two goes.
And laughing at those in bad fashions also goes a long way to passing the time if you're lacking lounge access. Some airports, it's like shooting fish in a barrel.
I usually walk the length of the terminal several times at a brisk pace so it feels like I'm doing something healthy. It also counteracts my other activity at airports, which is drinking copious amounts.
I actually like walking the length of the terminal as well if I have time. Otherwise- typically meet up with colleagues in very luxurious settings such as the famed RCC at ORD or the lovely SEN lounge at A FRA.
I will take walks through the terminal and then find a spot where I can watch the tarmac. In airports where there is not clear view outside, I will read.
People Watch... Try to guess whats happening in their life..
That is fun as well.
Take a shower and a nap in the lounge. Hopefully I'm in a first class lounge with beds. Or take a bath at the LH FCT, or use the pool at SIN...
Speaking of swimming pools, the Fairmont Airport at YVR has a great swimming pool.
There is a pretty nice gym at the Hilton ORD. I think they sell day passes.
They do sell day passes- also memberships. In general- if I have a couple of hours at ORD- I usually go to the Hilton- great steakhouse as well if you are hungry and a nice atmosphere.
At ATL, stay on the underground train once you get to international terminal E to ride to the extra stop before its turnaround to head back in the other direction.
I like looking at details - such as the luggage. It's pretty easy to separate the true frequent travelers from the "occasionals (Briggs & Riley & Tumi versus a new case that looks like it was on the shelf at Marshalls or Wal-Mart a few hours previously)
People watch, read, take pictures of planes. And sometimes wish my bp had a different destination.
