Recently, Skyscanner revealed data suggesting 49 percent of respondents would like to catch a movie while waiting for their flight to depart.
I'm not sure about you, but the last thing I want to do is sit down between long flights. Sore bum! Not to mention the cramping back.
Other features that made the top ten list for travellers included sleeping pods (definately!), library, gym, an outdoor park and a man made beach.
I get these. Anything that gets me moving. Recently, on a trip to Phuket, we had a long transit in Singapore. Going to the roof top pool, having a swim and relaxing in open air, we easily passed a few hours. I'd also appreciate a gym in airports, but then again, when do I want to pack sports clothes as carry on?
What would you like to see in airports?
Recently I saw that Abu Dhabi Airport have GoSleep pods that are hired out by the hour. For about $12 an hour, you get a chair that converts to a lay flat bed, complete with shade that helps keep out light, noise and of course, get you away from the crowds. It would mean no more curling up on the row of chairs, tucking your bag underneath you for safe keeping, and slightly dozing while attempting to get comfortable. In my opinion, so worth it. One can only imagine what could happen in a double version. But a family series could be very helpful.
