AIRPORT RATINGS

I see that Manila's Terminal 1 Airport has scooped the pool being rated the world's worst for the second year in succession.    Dilapidated facilities, dishonest airport workers - especially taxi drivers, long waiting times and rude officials apparently made the choice an easy one.

The terminal at the Italian airport of Bergamo was rated second-worst followed by Calcutta which edged out Islamabad.

The best rated airports were Singapore's Changi (the main runway was built over the top of our house) followed by Seoul Incheon and Amsterdam Schiphol.

In our part of the world Auckland Airport was rated top followed by Brisbane, Melbourne and Adelaide with Wellington rounding out the top five.

The survey didn't pick a wooden spooner ... Perth would have had to come close.

Ah..wondered given Singapore had severe foreign ownership of residential properties since 1973.

Adolf Fiinkensein said...

Well that's alright then, Watcher. Veteran can be very severe when he wants to.

Watcher said...

Missed out Rules after foreign ownership.

So it wasn't his house.

The Veteran said...

Watcher, no, it was a Government bungalow. Had five of them over the years but Changi was our first.

Does no-one want to comment on the post?
