I flew out of KPHL about two weeks ago on LH
from terminal A West and I realized that there are no options to sit down and have a drink or something to eat landside. You can only get a coffee and stand around in the international arrivals hall (which is not very welcoming). So, my girlfriend who dropped me off and I walked to the airport Marriott (not really close) to finally get something. Is it so unusuall these days to be at an airport with someone who doesn't have a ticket and therefore can't go airside? I haven't experienced anything comparable at other airports. Especially when you compare it with JFK
's terminal 4 or my home airport, FRA
, even PHL
's newest terminal is not state of the art at all. Your thoughts?
