US airport ammenities not world-class, but improving

Minute Suites
Minute Suites

When it comes to air travel, our airports are falling far behind in customer-friendly services, but hopefully companies such as Minute Suites can provide a capitalist answer to improving the experience.

The airport friendliness bar has been set very high in places such as Singapore's Changi airport. Here, waiting travelers can enjoy a nap in a recliner in the Rest Room, watch a free movie in a theater, take a free dance class, stop for a consultation at the medical clinic, take one of the free city bus tours, go swimming in the airport's outdoor pool, work out in its gym, check e-mail at a free Internet terminal and generally be treated like a human being rather than a heifer.
