A Brief Blog Profile: Stuck at the Airport

by Thomas Hynes


You might not be surprised to find out that the travel blog, Stuck at the Airport began when one weary traveler was, herself, stuck at an airport. She's already read the paper. She'd already eaten vending machine food. When suddenly, she followed a poorly lit sign to an observation deck. Through a few more doors, she "entered a large room with leather chairs and a great view onto the airfield and the surrounding countryside."  From there she decided someone ought to point out the amenities available at airports. And that someone ought to be her.

Stuck at the Airport  talks also talks a lot about the travel industry as a whole, including updates on the TSA, new airport names, as well as the science to airline food. But there's still that original inspiration found here on the blog. There's still a treasure trove of airport highlights from across the world. For instance, I had no idea that the airport in Philadelphia had a collection of lamps made from skateboards. You might also like to know that you can hear live music at the airport in Austin. And, holy cow, there are IMAX movies at the airport in Hong Kong?!?! 

So in a way, this isn't really a blog about airports at all. This is a blog about secrets. This is a blog about the best way to spend time that might otherwise be lost.

News Widget

Still not convinced? Here's what one blogger had to say about the widget.
