What the fuck are you going to fly a plane into here?

I can't wait to do some small plane flying when i decide to visit more NZ regional centres.
Ever flown Wellington to Nelson or Blenheim? On a fine day, it's simply fantastic passing over the Marlborough Sounds.

Airports where you walk to the planes for the win.

Christchurch Airport for the lose. Straight out of the 70s.

Last time I flew into Auckland, I thought the customs guy there was about to ask me to come have a beer! He was the friendliest guy. Never had such a good experience in an airport.

I know the feeling.

You have to wait in line for a ridiculous amount of time (skipping the NZ/Australian passport holders line is usually faster), but it's generally a fun chat once you get there.

Dulles - VA (and 30 min away from DC)
BWI - WTF it is called Baltimore Washington?! Those are 2 cities an hour apart! And it's closer to Bmore than DC.
National - still in VA, but you can see the nat'l monument from it so that's close enough.
Oh, so National isn't in DC? Bah, I was told it was. So I haven't been to DC after all. Damnit.

Eeek... I wasn't on the plane when it got zapped... that must have been alarming, all right!

i was trapped in a temporary terminal where water cost 2.50 euros and everything else was even more. i bought 1 bottle of water and thanked myself for pakcing snacks. and listened to multiple u2 shows.
I'd bought a bag of those mini Reese's peanut butter cups ( ) in Chicago, and had managed not to eat them in Hawaii (we didn't have the time!)... they didn't survive the layover in Auckland airport.
I still have half the litre of kahlua I got at the duty-free shop...

I think they should close Christchurch Airport, build a new one, and keep the old one was some kind of working museum so people in 2070 can see what flight was like 100 years previously. It already looks like a fucking museum piece.
