FORUM GAME: Aviation Trivia!

Hmm… i wonder if it’s due to internal management obligations, or contractual obligation with the airport.

On the point of ATC, I wouldn’t know, since I’m not really affiliated or have close connections to ATC, though I have read that both MAD and EZE are very bad.

If New York as in La Guardia, I somehow suspect its’ quite true, but I think there are worse in more rural areas of USA.

I suggest youtube. Look for kennedy steve. He’s atc at new york kennedy. He’s hilarious at times. If you look further you might find kennedy jack. He’s… Well, listen for yourself:)

Wasn’t this in the Wendover video somebody posted in another thread? :stuck_out_tongue:


#556

Wouldn’t the coldest airport depend on what time of year it is?


#557

Unless an airport is coldest year round:)


#558

Or the time of asking. You could’ve been asking for the exact coldest airport at that exact moment in time!


#559

It is said that even during summer, in Yakutsk airport planes need deicing, so I’d think it’s most likely the coldest year round.

Here’s my question: Houston had a huge problem with passengers complaining about long waiting times for their baggage. How did they solve that problem?


#561

So this is what I found in NYT:

“So the airport decided on a new approach: instead of reducing wait times, it moved the arrival gates away from the main terminal and routed bags to the outermost carousel. Passengers now had to walk six times longer to get their bags. Complaints dropped to near zero.”

Interesting.

I think this is also what is implemented in my local airport, but they do still make the process improvement.


#562

That is correct. I found that funny and outrageous at the same time haha


#563

Can you find out where I was in my last holidays? :thinking:
