I thought I'd group them rather than start loads of threads. I hope you appreciate this.
1. Despite MacDonald's being easily the most recognised of the fast food joints I don't recall ever seeing one in an airport. It seems that Burger King somehow own the franchise to all airports world wide. Weird.*
2. The videos that run showing you the safety procedures on aircraft. They're unique to each airline in terms of the dress of the flight attendants and the ethnicity of the passengers, yet they are all filmed in the same manner and with the same high standards of post-production and editing. Do Boeing and Airbus do these for their clients as a freebie or something? It's comforting to see such uniformity, even down to the choice of English words, which aren't necessarily the most common.
3. Reclining your seat in an aircraft when there's someone behind you: the ultimate act of selfishness? Only mitigated when the person in front of you has done it, thus forcing your hand. Even so, I try to recline only as much as absolutely necessary in such a situation.
4. What do Bangkok and Singapore airports have in common? Both are marvellously new and sparkling buildings that provide state of the art gate areas with lots of seating, plasma screens, internet, etc. However, why do the airports therefore choose to make you wait outside of these gates until just before they begin boarding the aircraft, resulting in people sitting on the floor and bored out of their skulls for the preceeding hours before their flight is called? Is this some sort of revenge for colonialism?
*: In Australia this will be 'Hungry Jacks' but it's the same thing.
Thanks for your time.
