If you haven't planned your summer vacation yet, I recommend a day trip to Philadelphia International Airport.

"Operational failure" has a variety of translations, from "flat tire" to "flaming engine."

The airport does not have a pool for kids. But it does have a spacious sauna that doubles as a shuttle bus between terminals.

(Describing a terminal "bistro"): The clerk behind the counter gives off an air of listless indifference, just as they do in Paris!
