In the past 30 years I have seen a lot of airports, where I spent my time waiting for the sign to board. I was always happy to see the words "Boarding Now" appearing on the screens of the departure boards. I have to wait at least three hours when I travel by plane. The longest normal waiting time was 19 hours. Sometimes I book a hotel room, sometimes I spent this time in one of the business class lounges, where I can read or work on the computer, while I am having a cup of coffee or tea.
I also like to walk along the shops
and see the interesting parts of the airports.
This is Schiphol by night. My eldest grandson and I were waiting for the flight to Tasmania, with a stop on Bali.
Then finally we got permission to go to our gate and board on our plane.
This is one of the ways to board, but sometimes we have to board outside the building.
The seats in most of the planes look very comfortable.
