Camping at the Airport

July 15, 2008

Before, if a flight was canceled or delayed for an airline’s own problem, except for the weather-related delays, airlines used to give their passengers vouchers for rooms and meals. Now, they no longer do that.

That’s how Mr. Frank Giotto came out this idea after an unscheduled overnight stay — the Mini Motel, a one-person tent including air mattress, pillow, reading light and alarm clock (sell for $39.95):

I only experienced this once. In 1995, Professor and I got stranded in Hong Kong airport en route to Beijing. After waiting for a while, We finally got meal vouchers for dinner and a free stay in the airport hotel for only few hours before tomorrow morning’s flight. That’s my first time to get on an airplane. Not too bad at all.

This tent might be good for a biking trip. Much cheaper. 😛
