Sleep your Layover (or Delay) Away

by

This time of year, airport delays and layovers are almost impossible to avoid.  For lucky travelers heading through Concourse B at Atlanta’s Hartsfield Jackson Airport, you can now spend part or all of your time in one of their five Minute Suites. 

The suites are 7 x 8 foot rooms and come equipped with a daybed sofa, pillows, fresh blankets, a small desk, internet access and a flat-screen monitor with DirecTV.  Similar to the cubicles that Asian travelers use to catch a snooze between flights, the world’s largest airport is the first in the US to offer these Suites.  Other airports, like San Francisco International  are following and plan to open 14 rooms in its International Terminal sometime next year. 

The cost for an hour in one of Atlanta’s Minute Suites is $30, with each additional 15 minutes costing $7.50.  Seems a bit steep to me – but then again, if I were trapped for hours waiting for my flight it might not seem so bad.
