Airports used to be places we just passed through on our way to somewhere else. But with an increase in layovers and ever-mounting delays, "dwell-time" in airports has become an inevitable, tedious, and often infuriating part of travel today. This essential guidebook won't get you where you want to go faster, but it does provide great suggestions for eating well, taking care of business, and having fun while you wait. In clear, cleverly written profiles of each airport, Harriet Baskas, Expedia.com's airport expert, spells out: the best places to eat and what local specialties to try; diversions for kids (playgrounds, observation decks, and museums); quick trips to make by cab (including times to the nearest city); locations of business centers and data ports; shops with interesting, reasonably priced items; well-stocked bookstores; art and history exhibits; clean places to shower and quiet corners for taking a nap. In some airports, she reveals, you can even get a dentist to look at that troublesome tooth, a shoemaker to fix a wobbly heel, and a masseuse to case travel-induced kinks -- and crankiness. Organized alphabetically for easy reference. Stuck at the Airport is the indispensable travel companion for business and leisure travelers alike.

This book is not just about air travel. It is about the emergent social world of flying. It concerns air space and behavior in the air the way someone else might look at cities and street behavior. Economic, political, and cultural aspects are all considered. . . . Airports have now become specific places in their own right that, in a certain sense, now. . . are very much like cities. Frequent flying also has produced its very own culture. Rules of behavior are subscribed to in the air. Unique behaviors at terminals and in the passenger cabin have emerged that contrast with life on the ground. In chapters below I explore these interesting aspects of etiquette, eroticism, and bi-coastalism, a human activity that is only possible because of our present society's evolution. . . . Only now have we begun to appreciate our emergent global culture. The world is shrinking just as the opportunities for travel expand. -from the Introduction

The impact to airlines from airspace closure can be as benign as a two minute extension on an arrival pattern, or as catastrophic as a shoot down from a surface-to-air missile, as the tragic loss of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 over the Ukraine in July 2014 demonstrates. Airspace constraints come in a variety of forms, both man-made and physical, but all result in operational inefficiencies that erode the economic vitality of an airline. Understanding the root causes of these airspace restrictions, developing strategies for mitigating their impact, and anticipating future airspace closures, are critical for the efficient and safe operation of any airline. This book uniquely examines the technological, geographic, regulatory, and political aspects of airspace closure, with a focus on how airlines continue to adapt to overcome these challenges, providing readers with a framework for identifying issues and solutions in a systematic manner. Filled with historical references and contemporary anecdotes, this book serves both as a practical guide and strategic resource for airline managers navigating their 21st century. organizations around some of the lingering 20th century obstacles.
