The picture above was just for kicks, the title “sleeping in airports” is talking about travelers sleeping in airports as the picture below describes.
Long delays at an airport can be tiresome and if you don’t have lounge access how do you cope? Fortunately, a new (it’s been around since 2009, maybe not so new) concept is launching at its third airport, it’s called Minute Suites. Located airside in terminals, Minute Suites provides private cabins where travelers can take a quick nap while waiting for flights.
Minute Suites have already launched at Atlanta’s Hartsfield and Philadelphia International, with substantial traction the company is expanding to Dallas Fort Worth in Terminal D and many other airports over time.
Each cabin is 56 square feet and includes a daybed, pillows and blankets along with a 32 inch HDTV that can also be used as a computer hookup with wireless internet access. The cabin also provides in room workstations including a desk, phone and office chair. The current location does not have any bathrooms but the new one being launched at Dallas Fort Worth will have showers!
The price seems a bit high, it’s $30 for the first hour and (hour being the minimum stay) and $7.50 per every 15 minutes after. So the next time you find yourself dozing on the uncomfortable airport gate benches maybe you will consider the price for some peace and quiet. Another option is buying a day pass at an airport lounge, not all lounges will let you do that but the ones that do make a worthwhile purchase if you plan on spending some time at an airport.
