I was disturbed to discover a juice bar in the airport on Friday called Love Juice.

MarkH (MarkH), Monday, 14 June 2004 11:46 (fifteen years ago) link

That's to get the mile-highers in the mood and lubricated.

penelope_111, Monday, 14 June 2004 11:47 (fifteen years ago) link

I haven't heard the expression "love juice" since I was 16.

Markelby (Mark C), Monday, 14 June 2004 11:47 (fifteen years ago) link

How are the Cranky Itchers?

DB should have arrived in NYC by now.

i had a layover in Dallas. they have the fucking coolest thing. the Aqua-Massager,. you lay in this waterproof sleeping bag type thing with all your clothes on in the middle of the airport and get pelted with hard streams of water while everyone can watch. very weird. had it been a little more private, i woulda thought it was kinda cool

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

Elvis Telecom (Chris Barrus), Friday, 23 July 2004 04:45 (fifteen years ago) link

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.

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

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

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

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

Have a good time in NYC, Elvis.

jim wentworth (wench), Friday, 23 July 2004 04:51 (fifteen years ago) link

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.

Elvis Telecom (Chris Barrus), Friday, 23 July 2004 05:01 (fifteen years ago) link

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

jim wentworth (wench), Friday, 23 July 2004 05:10 (fifteen years ago) link

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)

Elvis Telecom (Chris Barrus), Friday, 23 July 2004 05:17 (fifteen years ago) link

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 (fifteen years ago) link

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 (fifteen years ago) link

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

Anyway, getting on the plane now

Elvis Telecom (Chris Barrus), Friday, 23 July 2004 05:31 (fifteen years ago) link

Happy landings!

jim wentworth (wench), Friday, 23 July 2004 05:33 (fifteen years ago) link

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'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 (fourteen years ago) link

was meant to be flying back from nine hours in Boise at 9pm

sans lep (sic), Saturday, 15 December 2018 05:15 (eleven months ago) link

this got pushed to 9:55

then the incoming plane we were meant to be getting on suffered turbulence, and we were told that by 10:30pm we’d have more information

sans lep (sic), Saturday, 15 December 2018 05:17 (eleven months ago) link

that plane has been too damaged to fly, and we might be getting on a flight that’s due to land at 10:28, but obv won’t have any updates until after it gets onto the ground.

Not sure if I’m on the second or third loop of the Christmas music playing. They do include Baby It’s Cold Outside though.

sans lep (sic), Saturday, 15 December 2018 05:50 (eleven months ago) link

It’s 11:16 and we’re on a plane but they have to de-ice the wings, and the crew aren’t allowed to stand up during the flight

sans lep (sic), Saturday, 15 December 2018 06:16 (eleven months ago) link

they gave you a fair musical warning about the ice on the wings

five months pass...

I work at Gatwick so I'm usually in an airport. But I'm not usually locked in a stockroom/office cos somebody with a knife is wandering around airside with a knife!

Came out of the lifts at around 2 am which are located just thru security with my trolley of stock and I could see the backs of about six security people running towards the Dept lounge. I figured that a flight had been cancelled and some passengers were refusing to leave (this happens quite often). Went into our shop to ask the other replenners if they knew what was going on but before I could say anything I heard a commotion in the corridor so went back out to have a look and saw security running back towards the staff entrance shouting at the staff at the body scanners to clear out. Looked to my left and saw some guy walking down the corridor with a big fuck off kitchen knife in his left hand shouting " which of you pussy holes wants it?"

Decided I didn' t in fact 'want it' so ducked back into the shop and let the 3 colleagues there know and the supervisor led us to the stockroom which has a keypad lock and we stayed there. Don't know if one of the chef's at the airport had just had an episode or something but it was p scary. He was roaming for a while cos a couple of our colleagues who were working in other shops joined us about ten mins later and said they' d just seen the guy as well. After another ten mins security came by and said the incident had been dealt with.

fuck

godfellaz (darraghmac), Monday, 3 June 2019 08:48 (six months ago) link

lol nice to see gatwick pretending that dude approached staff entrance where officers then tazed him. what actually happened was security let him walk through staff entrance (i don't blame them he had 2 huge knives and security are unarmed and don't have stab vests) dude then proceeded to wander around dept lounge threatening shop workers and cleaners before eventually making his way back to the staff entrance where the police arrived and tased him.

Narita ftw

I will be at both Narita and Haneda on friday.

American Fear of Pranksterism (Ed), Wednesday, 21 August 2019 09:50 (three months ago) link

i'd take haneda over narita any day but i've had to use narita already twice this month for the tokyo to beijing through incheon flight (and tokyo to xi'an through incheon).

incheon has jamba juice and quiznos which is novel coming from japan

XxxxxxxXxxxxxxxxXxxxx (dylannn), Wednesday, 21 August 2019 14:23 (three months ago) link

I have the misfortune of landing at Narita and flying out of Haneda, no biggie, just 2 hours on the Keisei and Keikyu thinking about what to get for lunch.

American Fear of Pranksterism (Ed), Wednesday, 21 August 2019 20:46 (three months ago) link

dylannn OTM. Narita is only convenient if you have in-laws in Chibaken.

I'd even take KIX over NRT.

Jersey Al (Albert R. Broccoli), Sunday, 25 August 2019 18:41 (three months ago) link

when i went to japan last month i flew into haneda and was impressed with how quickly everyone was processed through customs and was still treated with more dignity there than by cbp in the us.

Carisis LaVerted (m bison), Sunday, 25 August 2019 18:46 (three months ago) link

I’m thinking my flight tomorrow is one where I’ll go through US customs in Canada, which always seems a little funny but whatever

it took a lot longer to buy my bus pass at trudeau/montreal than it did to go through canadian customs!

had my first experience using global entry last week, was glad I got it, it made US customs a lot less painful

Dan S, Sunday, 25 August 2019 21:35 (three months ago) link

i went throigh us customs yesterday

granted 5 planes unloaded at the same time but still - we had 4, wait no he left so 3, oop he left now too so make that 2 inspectors operating for half the entire hall ... stood in that godawful room for 90 minutes before passing through

assclowns

also they’ve overhauled every nook & cranny of that airport EXCEPT for the customs area. except for the passport kiosks it’s exactly the same as it was in 2002 when i immigrated. hated it then, hate it now

At Toronto en route to Montreal from Glasgow and seem to have developed a new allergy and am sneezing like crazy

hopefully it'll be much better in montreal!

I got tested for allergies recently and only reacted to tree and grass pollen (which should be done by now). Confounding and v annoying.

I was in Montreal a month or so back and while I was gone, ragweed season started back home. Getting off the plane was an instant sneezing thing
