HOLIDAY AIR­PORT WOES

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - OPINION -

I can’t help but no­tice how hap­less and dis­or­gan­ised other­wise level-headed peo­ple are once they get to an air­port.

A fam­ily ahead of me at Cairns Air­port dur­ing a busy time of day must have added at least ten min­utes of wait­ing to ev­ery­one else’s jour­ney. They left bags be­hind for the air­port po­lice to pe­ruse (and be­rate them for), searched for checkin in­for­ma­tion only once they got to the desk, were sent back through the metal de­tec­tor three times each and then waited for the flight crew to ask them for their ticket be­fore go­ing search­ing for it when it was time to board! It was plenty of en­ter­tain­ment at least. Trav­el­ling by air is easy - it’s just some fel­low trav­ellers make it look very hard.
