Helsingin Sanomat: Flying – no longer a fast way of travelling

Travel Notes — Антон Марчуков @ 22.11.06 21:25

An article in the Helsingin Sanomat describing which direction the current situtation with planes goes in:

Flying – no longer a fast way of travelling. Join the queue and prepare to run your legs off.

The security staff are no longer searching for guns or explosives, but for metal objects, tubes of hand cream for people with atopic dermatitis, and soy milk powder for infant feeding bottles.

Over the last couple of hundred metres, the dripping sweat starts to blur vision, as we career along corridors, down flights of stairs, and up and down escalators. We make it. Gate 53 closes behind us.

I fully agree! Won’t anybody go to build another channel tunel under the Gulf of Finland :-)
