If online resources aren't doing the job as you said, then the only logical solution is to find an employee who seems to be friendly, and ask them! Employees know better, perhaps they even know some secret places that allow passengers to buy from. If they are super nice, they can offer to buy you the meal (using your money) using their discount (many ...

One time I found a decent place serving tasty food to taxi drivers at Toronto's airport (a short walk outside to where the limo drivers park). They're mostly South Asian, so the place had good basic oily "sweets shops" type Indian fare like thali, nan and so on. Of course once you go through security you lose that option. Similarly, years ago, when I ...

A random one-off food concession in an airport, agreed, can be pretty "hit and miss". So you see "St Louis Bread Co.", what the heck is that? However food chains should have comparable quality to any of their restaurants. So McDonalds at BWI should be just like McDonalds in Streator, Illinois. This is greatly complicated by a couple of trends. The ...

Bremen is a relatively small airport. After your arrival and baggage claim, you end up in the check in hall again, where you can drop off your luggage, and after that you take the stairs or elevator to the second floor where you find the security checks for departure. You can find a map here (unfortunately the detailed map is only available on the german ...

Some airports have staff canteens. The one I know for sure is Singapore. Travelers are allowed to use it if they can find it (just ask an employee). The food is both cheap and delicious, since it's intended for the residents (who are used to amazing food in the rest of the country) and not expensive and bland like in the passenger restaurants. I believe ...

Most airports have their own websites: perhaps they have info on food. For example, SFO had a nav link, which had a "Dining" link, containing brief descriptions and the names of the places: https://www.flysfo.com/shop-dine-relax/dining/ You could take a name that looks promising and check for a review of it on something like TripAdvisor. Or maybe the ...

Take a look at this list of Swiss Airlines check in times: https://www.swiss.com/us/EN/prepare/check-in/checkin-times If you only have carry on you can check in online and/or get an electronic boarding pass on your phone, you can walk directly to security without having to stop at the counter. Personally, I would be fine with 60 minutes, but if you want to ...

Depending on the rest of your travel plans, taking part of a meal with you can be a good idea. A salad and fruit, for example, don't (have to) need refrigerating and can be eaten in waiting-area seats either with a sandwich bought at the airport, or before/after one of the smaller (lighter/better value) options from an eat-in place. This is a good option ...

Some big airports in Europe have supermarkets in which you can buy a salad or there are secctions with warm food like chicken, pasta... and sushi as well. If not, then I prepare something at home easy to eat, like a quiche or a tupper with pasta salad and I take some fruit.

Bremen airport is small, and hence you should have no problems moving from arrivals to departure quickly. I worked in Bremen for a few months, my office was close to the airport and from time to time I had lunch in the airport and that's just a small airport, you can go through the whole airport in only a few minutes.

The actual answer here could not be simpler, Just use the food review web sites - they very much cover airports just as they cover cities. https://www.eater.com/airport-dining-guides https://www.yelp.com/biz/one-flew-south-atlanta https://www.yelp.com/biz/ecco-atlanta-2 For any airport, you can google "Best place to eat, XYZ airport, terminal 3" or ...

It seems other users are experiencing similar issues as seen here. You can either: Bring cash to exchange Use an international ATM: Note these aren’t located at the airport. The two international ATMs are Sevenbank which accepts cards including AMEX and visa, and Japan Post Bank which also accepts international cards. (Not affiliated with these services) ...

It was not clear from the question if there actually was a self-drop counter for LH there (which in that case was out of service?) or not. Assuming there wasn't: One likely cause is "Not willing to pay for being the pioneer" or otherwise not getting the payback. Although I suppose LH is big also there. If you are (among) the first self-drop counter(s) on a ...

I contacted Brussels airport on their Facebook messenger. Their response was that yes, you can go through earlier if that works for you, HOWEVER, it does depend on whether or not you have checked luggage, as some checkin counters won't open earlier.

I have the same problem, and the only solution I found is to buy food ahead of the trip and take it with me - you can buy several subs, for example, and take them through security before your first flight, together with one or more empty water bottles. You would only need to refill the water bottle somewhere inside the secure area, or buy other liquids, if ...

No, for a period less than 12 hours a Indian citizen does not seem to need a Transit visa for Thailand. The Royal Thai Embassy in Australia type India in Box for Passport of which Country do you hold? select Transit Visa from result and all information you need can be seen. The site is very easy to use wish other countries would make it as easy The ...

TL;DR: Overpriced businesses prey on travellers who are in a hurry and can't shop around. These people probably will think, once in a while, why not pay $3 for a small bottle of water? To save money, you will need to know the airport and its surroundings to find decent stuff/fairly priced stuff. I assume the rule applies to every airport. My example is ...

Looks like there is a service iTaiwan Wi-Fi which aims to provide 1Mbps (mirror), which is more than enough for video calling, but as ckx mentioned, relying on it could be iffy. But yes, theoretically, it's feasible. The airport itself, according to a collection of airport speed tests (mirror): TPE airport - located in Taiwan - offers totally free wifi ...

In general, relying on a single service for something important is very likely to end up in tears. What if it has an outage...? What if a jerk decides to watch Netflix on the same AP you are on? I would rather pick up a SIM card from eBay before leaving -- even just as a backup.

There is a transportation service: T1B to T2: Prices Rs.245 for a Sedan. Rs.700 for a SUV. T2 to T1B: Prices Rs.230 for a Sedan. Rs.750 for a SUV. The counters to buy the ticket are located: T1B: Arrivals. Phone: 8767350021. T2: Level 2, International Arrivals. Phone: (022) 65882672 (Airport Website)

Since I live in Switzerland I often fly from Zurich. For Inter-Europe flight, I go there about two hours before departure. For longer flights), I take about two and a half hours. Depends on the trains. Most longer flights(outside Schengen+UK I think) are at a Terminal where you need to take a short train/subway. Those take about 15 minutes longer to get to ...

Watch where the flight crews go. Often they'll bypass the overpriced places with big lines and go to the hole-in-the wall cafe that you might otherwise walk right by. I've done this a couple times with good results, mostly for the purpose of avoiding long lines.

Depending on airport and airline, you may be able to buy yourself into an executive lounge for a nominal fee, even as an economy passenger. Some airports sell day passes into lounges. This will give you access to a more comfortable waiting area and better food/drink/service. Price and availability does change, but it's an option worth investigating. I ...
