Empty Plane

Had another one of those weird flights (London Heathrow to SFO) where the plane is almost empty. Love getting a row to myself, but it’s a little bit creepy, too.

How Not to Treat Users at Your International Airport

I actually like flying in and out of SFO, but this stuff drives me bananas, not least because I feel for visitors from out-of-state, especially those for whom English is not their primary language. When you step out of Baggage Claim, you’ll find your shuttle at the blue and white painted curb. See it?

Of course not, and it’s ridiculous to think you can. That’s okay, just follow the signs helpfully printed in 8 point Helvetica…

… because of course SFO needs to make its signs all but unreadable at any distance longer than your arm. Oh, there it is.

See, all you have to do is push your nostrils into it:

Fancy new urinal at SFO. Really messy. Can’t say I cared for it.
