eCPD has engaged the services of an airline pilot to give a presentation on what goes on behind the scenes at an airport. Not only is he a pilot, currently working with a well-known airline, but prior to his training he worked in nearly every section of the airport, thus gaining an intimate knowledge of what goes on behind the scenes, and who carries out the work.

I'm currently working on what I hope will be a regular job providing airport announcement texts, so this couldn't have come at a better time!

... who does the work at airports ... Mar 30

... including the translations.

Sheila, I hope this new job gives you the chance to rid all AENA airports of the recorded announcement we hear all the time, "Please passengers proceed to Gate X ...". Even if there were a comma - or a pause, rather - after "Please" it still wouldn't be right.

I can't disclose which airport(s) I'm working with, but it's exactly the type of mistake I'm seeing and dealing with. Maybe I'll get to rid the entire world of that one .

Terminal Mar 30

Has anyone seen the film "Terminal"? It stars Tom Hanks as a suddenly "stateless person" who is not allowed to immigrate or to board a flight back whence he came. He finds himself forced to live in the terminal building at Kennedy Airport - and manages to survive. It certainly gives some insight into who does the work at airports. I don't know how realistic it is but it's a fascinating idea.
