Quotes
Just take a seat. You’re not buying real estate.
– Flight attendant on Southwest

Airports are un-places; a place you only visit to leave it again.
– Marcus Bauer, flughafen-leer-steril

‘Reduce the number of flights you take to as small an amount as possible, and if you do ever fly, stay somewhere where your visit will be contributing positively to the wellbeing of local people and their environment’. I’m just struggling to fit it on a banner.
– Jeremy Smith, Sustainable travel – We need to talk about… flying
