Luggage Lockers Back In Service At MSP

Mon Aug 18, 2003 1:48 pm

Today I made a connection on NW at MSP, and I noticed that the luggage lockers were in use again. Since I had a three and a half hour layover, and I wanted to be able to explore the airport unencumbered by my suitcase, I used one. Now you have to give a fingerprint twice, and once when you retrieve your luggage. I haven't seen operational lockers at any other airport in quite a while. In exploring MSP airport, I found an observation deck on Concourse D, and I spent a lot of time up there. Why can't other airports have observation decks?

they had storage at Frankfurt when I was there a couple times last December, it was 3-4 Euros if I remember right, and they x-rayed your bags. More like a storage area, than a locker, pre se, but I got to runaround without all of my bags from Saudi for 10 hours, and that was more than worth it.

The lockers were closed for quite a while until they could make sure they were secure. Interesting system, however.

That's cool! L1011, what time did you arrive and on what aircraft? I was out shooting at MSP yesterday, maybe I got a pic of your aircraft!

It's about dang time! They need to reopen the lockers at all airports! They were so convenient and there's absolutely no reason at all to close them.

I too wish more airports had observation platforms. Some do, but too many don't.
Last year 1,944 New Yorkers saw something and said something.

Continental:

I arrived on Sunday at around 11:45 A.M. on NW 1022 from Edmonton. I was on an A319, N364NB, in the new colors. I left MSP at around 4:00 P.M. on NW 110 to DCA, which was an A320, N359NW, in the old colors. I think I must have explored every inch of the airport inside security.
