This one has been a rather busy week with lots of airport delay news flowing into our news desk . Fortunately most of them were rather minor on the “delay gravity” scale. Here are our topics:

We’re back from our little break and have quite a number of interesting stories from the past week or so. Three stories come from Europe and one from the Middle East. The U.S., normally dominant on airport related stories is absent in our review this week, which we think, is a welcome change. However, you can re-read all posts we published throughout the week on our Twitter page (which has a few U.S. stories…).

It’s early morning and you just realized that your travel department booked you on a flight with a four hour stop-over in Copenhagen in contrast to the direct flight you normally get.

Thanks a lot for all your feedback on my first blog entry. One of many comments was that you would like to see a top X list of things to do. Fair enough, so here’s the one for Copenhagen’s Kastrup airport:
- Visit the tiny but iconic Lego store – DKK 0
- Decide between the brown and the black leather jacket in the Puma store – DKK 2,000
- Drink a large beer at the Sportsbar while watching the Euro Soccer – DKK 67
- Make room for the next beer downstairs in the roomy toilets – DKK 0
- Watch the gorgeous blond across the hallway – priceless
Again, comments are of course more than welcome 🙂

Copenhagen is a beautiful city, especially when you visit it in June where the daylight hours are the longest of the year and even more so if you are lucky and find warm and sunny weather.
