I'm currently in front of gate 210 in ONT waiting on JetBlue to take me to JFK.

The ONT terminal is nice in a late-90s shopping mall sort of way, but the layout is horrible with one long linear line of gates so you have to walk miles. Additionally, there are no electrical power outlets near the seating, you have to sit on the floor in the middle of the walkway.

At least the wireless is free.

Oh yeah, there's an ant problem here too.

Elvis Telecom (Chris Barrus), Friday, 23 July 2004 04:47 (11 years ago) Permalink

Hell yes, it's ant season. Mine's coming for a stay next week.

Have a good time in NYC, Elvis.

There's a LOT of ants here. If this was anything smaller than a giant airport terminal building we'd be re-enacting Phase IV here.

What kind of ants and what's the nature of your trip?

jim wentworth (wench), Friday, 23 July 2004 05:10 (11 years ago) Permalink

Standard-sized house ants.

Going to NYC to see JBR, take more of my stuff out in advance of the October move, and to go see Devo & the Yeah Yeah Yeahs(as mentioned on this thread)

I also win because I was able to score an exit row seat at the last minute. Hooray for extra leg room!

Elvis Telecom (Chris Barrus), Friday, 23 July 2004 05:18 (11 years ago) Permalink

Leg room is a big plus So's the Devo date. Exactly when are they playig?

jim wentworth (wench), Friday, 23 July 2004 05:26 (11 years ago) Permalink

Friday night in Central Park with the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. There's an ILM thread about it.

Anyway, getting on the plane now

Happy landings!

Make that 100, and you'd be right.

(Wish I'd actually thought to look for this thread on Thursday, when I was actually in an airport.

i'm holding it down though. soon i'll be in another airport, and i'll have like 4 hours to kill!!

I'll be in two airports next week. One in Canada! Calgary! I've never been to Canada before. I'll be there for all of an hour!

Adam In Real Life (nordicskilla), Thursday, 25 August 2005 21:18 (9 years ago) Permalink

actually, three airports.

what's your second airport?

I don't even know where Calgary is!

xp the new Vanity Fair is the one with Jennifer Anniston on it.

i could get TIME CANADA with kanye west on the cover ("hip hop's class act")

oh that J-AN VF looks thick and JUICY!

s1ocki (slutsky), Thursday, 25 August 2005 21:20 (9 years ago) Permalink

oh no, I wasn't suggesting that this thread isn't valid, just noting the confluence.

xp get Wired. Wired's the quintessential airport magazine.

Adam In Real Life (nordicskilla), Thursday, 25 August 2005 21:20 (9 years ago) Permalink

eww!! i don't think i've ever bought an issue of wired!!

s1ocki (slutsky), Thursday, 25 August 2005 21:21 (9 years ago) Permalink

I LIKE wired!

Adam In Real Life (nordicskilla), Thursday, 25 August 2005 21:21 (9 years ago) Permalink

really? is it good? i guess i've read some wired articles online... but BUYING a magazine about the internet always seems like a waste of money!

s1ocki (slutsky), Thursday, 25 August 2005 21:22 (9 years ago) Permalink

it's not about the internet, it's about science! and they have one or two really good writers (and some terrible ones).

Adam In Real Life (nordicskilla), Thursday, 25 August 2005 21:23 (9 years ago) Permalink

can i buy an issue of mondo 2000 instead?

s1ocki (slutsky), Thursday, 25 August 2005 21:23 (9 years ago) Permalink

I mean, it IS kind of embarassing, but I enjoy it.

xp yes

Adam In Real Life (nordicskilla), Thursday, 25 August 2005 21:23 (9 years ago) Permalink

well i'll totally buy it if the VF isn't there. also the entertainment weekly this week looks boring!! it's like a summer wrap-up issue, fuck that, i don't wanna read past tense versions of the articles they've been writing since may!!

s1ocki (slutsky), Thursday, 25 August 2005 21:25 (9 years ago) Permalink

what about a foreign newspaper?

Adam In Real Life (nordicskilla), Thursday, 25 August 2005 21:28 (9 years ago) Permalink

or a good mystery?

Adam In Real Life (nordicskilla), Thursday, 25 August 2005 21:28 (9 years ago) Permalink

Toblerone?

Remember s1ocki, it's the end of winter down there. But don't be surprised to see lots of long stockinged legs even with the winter coats.

I misread the thread title as I AM AN AIRPORT, so I was hoping it would be full of things like I AM AN AIRPORT COME AND LOOK AT TEH AIRPLANES TALKING OFF FROM ME.

It could well have been a lost Jonathan Richman song- the followup to "Rockin' Shopping Center" and the precursor to "I'm A Little Airplane."

Calgary = Canadian Cowboyland. (Well, a lot of cities are Canadian Cowboyland, but Calgary likes to think of itself as the capital of it. Also, ask LeCoq about how cool Calgary is.. hahahah)

urrrggh at getting up at 5am on a Saturday to pick someone up at the airport

( who ALSO my boss and his sister!) (sic), Friday, 22 May 2015 20:45 (2 months ago) Permalink

especially when they've redesigned the parking since last time you did this, so you accidentally pay an entire parking fee just getting an outside spot

( who ALSO my boss and his sister!) (sic), Friday, 22 May 2015 20:47 (2 months ago) Permalink

hope you're picking up someone fun, at least!

I should never be in an airport before 7am

I forgot to take the liquids out of my bag during screening and no one even cared, though

I take back all of my past experiences of Midway airport in Chicago kind of being chill, though. Apparently since Southwest has expanded operations it's busy as hell. Still a lot less of a clusterfuck than O'Hare, but crowded.

ultimate american sock (mh), Wednesday, 3 June 2015 20:40 (2 months ago) Permalink

Yeah, they rarely give a shit about liquids being out anymore. I fly a lot, always leave them in my bag, get called out maybe 1 in 15?

Plane Stupid have re-formed and chosen today to launch their first action. My encounters with their members have been detailed elsewhere.

Currently stuck at LHR terminal 3 eyeing up the free whisky samples.

One of the smaller, narrower planes - 2x2 per row instead of 2x3. Are you going to Switzerland?

Just touched down in Edinburgh. Going to the south of France in a few weeks (same assignment)

It took me literally 15 minutes from leaving my front door to entering the airport, all with public transport. Wonder if that's an ILX record

gawker's psychotic monkeys (imago), Monday, 20 July 2015 08:47 (2 weeks ago) Permalink

I've doing LCY to Edinburgh for the last few weeks. Takes me about 30 mins which is great.

Stuck in the runway for half hour though.

runway today - usually its really smooth.

Whenever this thread is updated, and I'm myself in an airport, my eternal hope is that I might be able to look across the concourse and wave

I'm about to sleep in an airport. The Gatwick Yotel. It promises to be cramped. But in a nice way, like Cub Scout camping.

was in JFK last night, transfer from a domestic to an international flight; worst airport I've ever been in and I've been in some airports. Useful signage nonexistent and the food prices were hilarious.
