That must be the set for a new comedy, was that guy at the desk Steven Fry in disguise.

The video is definitely funny, but totally misleading. Prague is one of my favorite European cities, and Prague's airport is really no worse than, say, Ontario International near LA.

That's unfair. The worst airport in this part of the world is in Warsaw. Some departures were delayed by 3 years.

It can't have been filmed at Heathrow - the escalators are working!

For the real best and worst see http://www.salon.com/tech/col/smith/2007/06/15/askthepilot236/ [Broken]

It is nice to know that Franz finally got a job with the civil service. There is a list of banned items you can't take on a plane in Europe - but the list is secret! http://www.theregister.co.uk/2009/03/10/hand_luggage_banned_list/

Has anyone been to Colombo. We(me and my girl) were not allowed to board the plane for which we had tickets 6 months in advance, because supposedly we weren't there early enough and all the seats were already taken. That was the time when i was aquainted with the verb "overbooked", LOL. And we were at the counter 2 hours and 10min before the flight. When confronted why they had overbooked the plane, the manager said " no, we downsized the plane". Go figure.

Or San Juan Puerto Rico.

I was coming in on a connecting flight and I went to catch the next flight and they said. It's gone. I said what do you mean it's gone? It's not supposed to leave for 1/2 hour. They said oh they just decided to leave early.

Early??? Arrive early all you want ... but leave early? Egads. That'll keep you on your toes.

I'll take a thatched hut terminal (like Chizen Itza, Mexico used to have in 1966, or Isla de Roatan, Hondurus in 1968) over a turbulent plane ride.
