Sleeping in airports is on the uptick, what with fully booked flights and airlines not making with the hotel vouchers, the New York Times reports.
The story features a guy who invented a little one-person tent for camping out at the gate.
I can see staying in an airport overnight. I just can’t see sleeping in one. All other considerations aside, what about the constant security announcements in U.S. airports?
I carry earplugs, but those announcements are so loud, I can hear them through the plugs. Besides, I’m not sure it would be wise to wear them while sleeping in a public place.
On top of that, I just need a bed, or at least an air mattress. I couldn’t even sleep at Schiphol, in Amsterdam, which is quiet and has comfortable lounge chairs.
