Why No Photos Of Chubu Yet?

Fri Mar 18, 2005 11:22 am

Chubu International Airport has been open for a month and yet there are no pictures on A.net or anywhere else as far as I can tell.
It is not even in the airport list in the photo search.

I have not been down there yet and will not get there till next month.
Has anyone been there?

Interesting stats for first month:
2,000,000 visitors
75% of visitors are not traveling but shopping and eating
Four hour wait for some restaurants
Two hour wait for getting into the spa
Weddings reserved through December 2006
Profits exceeded estimates by about 130%.

Problems
Spacing between gates may be too tight. If one plane is departing and turns on its engines, servicing of an aircraft nearby must be held till the the first craft has left the area.
A strong fog came in two weeks ago and forced all flights to be diverted to Narita, Haneda and Kansai.
Restaurants running out of food and lines being extremely long
Lack of chairs for non-flying guests. (dealt with by putting out 200+ event chairs)

All in all the airport is doing well But...still no photos. Anyone coming to the World EXPO? Making a visit to Nagoya?
My name is Centrair but HND is closer. Let's Japanese Aviation!

I thought that myself; I've been looking every few days for photos and as you point out, there is no selection available for Chubu/Centrair, when viewing shots (although there is for uploading). It is surprising that it's around a month after the opening and we have no shots yet.

Hopefully the wait won't be too long!
