Yesterday evening I have been surprised to feel that someone from the Terminal 3 of Prague International Airport (Ruzyne) is using a bandit methods in competition for a parking places near the terminal which can actually kill you... So, this is my story:
January 12, 2012 at 18:00 - me, my wife and my son was departing from Ruzyne Terminal 3 to Larnaca (Cyprus) returning back on 14th of January with a private jet. Because of we have alot of bags and small son in a car, my wife parked a car (black Mercedes S 500) next to the terminal entrance (see plan attached) to an empty parking palce and forget to replace it.
When we come back from Larnaca late evening (approx 23:00), my wife took our car and start to drive from the airport to our home (100 km away from the airport) over a highway. Approximately 5 kilometers far from the airport, on the icing place - our car was spun on the highway, making a full stop across of the road!!! Thanks God the cars driving after us was able to make a full stop before hitting our car.
I removed a car to the edge of the highway and noticed that someone have removed a valve from the left front wheel of our car making tire deflated. The car has a hard winter tires, so my wife was not able to discover that the tire deflated before of this accident...
Thanks God we did not die this night on a highway and come to home in the morning with our small son!!! Later while discussing the situation with our friends I have been noticed that we parked our car on the place of the top management of the terminal and this is why the valve have been removed from the car's wheel, and my friends said - "do not be surprised, this is normal, they are always doing like this!!!"...
I do not know, who did this with our car, but I have a questions to the top management of the terminal: Is it really normal when your car become damaged up to the conditions which can kill you just because of you parked your car to the terminal employee's (management's) place???? Why not just follow a legal way - call police and evacuate a car??? And last - are you sure that it is not dangerous to fly a private aircrafts from/to this terminal???
I do not know what do you think about this situation, but I decided never use this terminal anymore - I do not want to be killed just because of someone competing for a parking place or for a client.
