    Oh the things kids will do to entertain themselves...... :D

    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. :)

    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.

    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.
