Der Flughaven

By Capt. Fogg

The average flight delay at FKI is 30 hours longer than next worst airport and the customer service help line connects you to a hat store in Stuttgart, but that's just a minor criticism of Prague's Franz Kafka International Airport. Corridors end in the middle of nowhere and you're likely to spend an eternity in the security check, or should I say Czech.

No, I'm not making it up. You can't make this stuff up, unless you actually are Kafka and of course you couldn't pick a better name for the labyrinthine, frustrating and surreal airport. Czech it out and maybe next time JFK won't seem quite so bad!

And for heaven's sake, don't put FKI on your itinerary on April 1st!

  • I saw this at the ONN the other day. Hilarious. And what's so funny about it is that it could very well be true.

  • Air travel has become a paranoid's nightmare. I once spent nearly 48 hours getting from JFK to West Palm Beach, including 24 hours in Cincinatti -- and they lost my luggage. They blamed it on weather even though it was bright and sunny in Florida and in New York (and in Cincinatti)

    I was complaining to a fellow passenger who told me he was returning from his mother's funeral and than not only had Delta lost his luggage, they lost his mother, casket and all.
