Well, well, we’re running late again and to make matters worse, we’re very time poor this week. Yes, we know, it’s an awful excuse but it’s true. Nevertheless, we did want you to know what’s been going on this week in the world of airports, so here’ a little list and some short comments from our Chief Editor Tom. It’s a new format, but hey, who said you wouldn’t embrace change, right?
- Tel Aviv’s Ben Gurion Airport (TLV) came into the firing range this week – literally. The airport is located 50 miles north of Gaza, within range of rockets being fired by the militant group Hamas. After a rocket landed in the area, the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) told all U.S. airlines that flights to the airport are prohibited. Europe’s airlines soon followed suit, but lifted the ban later in the week as the BBC reported.
- London’s Gatwick airport (LGW) got into some trouble this week after angry passengers complain about long baggage delays. According to passenger tweets reported by the BBC, passengers waited up to 4 hours for their luggage to appear. The airport told the news outlet that resourcing issues at the handling company were to blame.
- Less serious yet equally interesting news came from a PSFK article claiming Alaska Airlines let travellers print pancakes in their lounges. Fresh pancakes, who doesn’t like that?
That’s it for our quick update – you can always read our up-to-date news on our Twitter page. Safe travels!
