This is the last entry in the reporter's journal:
Overall, it's a fun article, a good read. I'm particularly annoyed with one paragraph however. He's talking about his SFO-LHR journey...
"The check in was painful. The flight was late. The plane was full. SFO is an domestic airport with international aspirations. With 10 hours flying It had all the hallmarks of a very nasty experience waiting to happen."
WHAT THE HELL? SFO is an international airport in every sense of the word. It serves a very cosmopolitan area of the world. It's got jumbo jets from a plethora of international carriers flying in and out. It's got direct flights to all regions of the world. A major international carrier (United) is hubbed there. Hell, it's got a brand, spankin' new INTERNATIONAL terminal. Hell, it's even (almost) ready for the A380! Plus, Mr. CNN Reporter, since when do you precede "domestic" with "an." Didn't you pay attention in grammar class?
Pfft. Don't diss my home airport, biotch.
