Your opinion of airports with limited announcements

Jump to last reply

After spending one hour at the LAX airport, I began to remember recent visits to other airports where announcements were limited. At London Heathrow airport in June, only final boarding calls were made over the PA system. At Madrid's Terminal 4, one announcement would come on each hour reminding people that boarding calls were not made over the PA system and one should arrive at the gate early. I ran into airports in Cyprus and Malta that did not make announcements or boarding calls.

But at the LAX airport, every two minutes there was an announcement about the 3 ounce rule for liquids (I'm at the gate), leaving luggage unattended, a non smoking airport, only one bag and one carry-on are permitted, I had to wonder, if I got on the PA and announced that there was a man with a gun so get down, would anyone listen.

Do you think it would be possible to board a plane using only the television monitor?
