filter: Is there such thing as a GOOD airport to sleep in?
starlost: digistilI'd rather see a survey of which airports have the best bars to get totally hammered in before boarding.....because if you're flying, especially in coach, being drunk is pretty much mandatory.good idea until you realize the flight crew may like the airport for the very same reason.
Damnhippyfreak: filter: Is there such thing as a GOOD airport to sleep in?Schiphol in Amsterdam has a bunch of comfy lounge chairs tucked away in low-traffic and therefore low-noise areas. Maybe not a good place to sleep in an absolute sense, but much better than most, IMHO.
Luffans: That place is an absolute hell-hole, to put it nicely. I wholeheartedly endorse the nuking idea. In fact, lets just expand the nukage to all of Manila. Christ, what a horrible city.

richwell: Meh, any airport in India, Pakistan or Nepal gives Manila some good competition.
KradDrol: Manila is pretty bad, but not the worst by far. If you want to sleep at the Manila airport, get a nice foot massage, the big reclining chairs they use are nice and comfy.Moscow by far is the worst. It's a gray concrete hangar. That's it./Spoiled by HKG

Harry Freakstorm: The airport in Tucson was really really nice to me a long long time ago. I was tossed out of the girlfriend's college apartment a day earlier than planned. I had a number of an airport limo driver; the only other person I knew in town. He told me if I got to a hotel, he could pick me up. I walked over to a hotel on Craycroft, called him back and he took me to the airport.There, he talked to the manager and they let me sleep in the airport day care center. Beat sleeping in a bus stop on top of my stuff.Happy ending: The girlfriend tracked me down at the airport, apologized and hit me up for my last $20 bill. Then she complained that she was going to waste fifty cents of it riding the bus back in to town. When I landed at my destination, I didn't have the money to get the car out of long term parking and had to bum a ride. The car sat for a couple of extra days until I got paid and could bail it out.

That is a terrible, terrible place and way worse than Manila.I cant believe there are worse airports than Manila (holding only major cities and airports with similar amounts of passenger volume to the same standard). What an utter shiathole of an airport. Just terrible.When you arrive in the departure area its like some kind of SE Asian version of Dante's inferno - crowds of beggers, con artists... You feel an anxiety you may get kidnapped or knifed just arriving in that damn place.The people who run that airport must be the biggest farking morons in a country that has no shortage of morons.I travel there every other year, so believe me... just awful.Kudos to Hong Kong airport (my fav). I also like Inchoen, just because it looks it has all the exact same franchises as a US airport (trust me, if you live in Asia, that's cool).

EatHam: Minimally Hairy Beer-Powered Simian: I'd rather see a survey of which airports have the best bars to get totally hammered in before boardingNone in the US anyway, as you won't be allowed to board if they can tell you're drunk.
liam76: Anyone who has been to Manilla also been to Jakarta?Absolute mad house and th eterminals are labeled in such a way that you can only read the numbers when you are right in front of them, so if you want to switch you don;t know which way to go.The info people, who speak english, will try and get you to board the city bus when you are trying to switch terminals as they get soem sort of kickback, and the terminal bus with big signs that say "gratis" (free) will demand money.I have also had a customs guy demand a bribe because I had a knife in my checked baggage. his rational was that I was flying to singapore and they were illegal there (so my bribe wouldn't have helped if I was actually stopping in Singapore).filter: Is there such thing as a GOOD airport to sleep in?I have slept great in the Singapore airport. If you are too good for th efloor they have fairly cheap rooms that consist of a bed and tiny TV.EatHam: Minimally Hairy Beer-Powered Simian: I'd rather see a survey of which airports have the best bars to get totally hammered in before boardingNone in the US anyway, as you won't be allowed to board if they can tell you're drunk.I am going to have to go with Singapore again with this one. I got shiat bombed there on time and missed that my flight was delayed an hour and th egate moved. I somehow also missed this ont he big screen. So I stumbled to the info desk, to find out what was going on. Now most people in singapore have no problem with english, so I don't know if it was my slurring or what, but she didn;t really respond to my question, but just asked me to sit down. A minute later one of those carts for old/handicapped people came by and drove me ot my new gate (I was very polite during this, I imagine if I was in any way belligerent it woudl have gone differently).
Bomb Head Mohammed: Anybody who claims that Manila airport is the worst clearly hasn't traveled very much. It's no superstar, but it's far far far from the worst.And a chorus line of groin kicks to anybody who claims that some US airport is the worst. Generic? yes. Full of fat people? yes. but "the worst worldwide?" GABMorans.
