You're right I think everyone should be able to have fun on the forum!
the airport now is a huge improvement over the "old airport terminal".
i do miss the old one though.
leaving aruba is sad. a way to make the departures less painful would be a great thing.
the new restaurant that is being built is a way to improve comfort. that restaurant, hopefully will be accessible to those up in the departure areas.
and if the airport needs or wants suggestions:
and i am serious that some type of entertainment be made available for those departing.
slots, better choice of dining, (is there free wifi?) maybe a kids playroom, a larger bar....that bar is always packed tight.
and i see nothing wrong with providing a smoking area.
i do not like the fact that folks smoke in the rest rooms. eeewww
there's a bar there??? oh my I must leave to early in the morning to even notice!

There is a bar with good hotdogs and good drinks. They have closed the AA Business Class/First Class Lounge. AA said the airport wanted to use it "for something else". It is right at gate 8 so maybe they'll do something recreational with it - we miss it though
Let it roll off your back. There will always be someone accusing another of various things...we know it was in jest; and we need more humor in our lives...thanks
Andrea, I agree as I have been scolded also!

no, i haven't amy
our gate is usually at the far end directly across from the restrooms.
we have gone over to the bar at gate 6 and hung out having a cold beverage for a little while, but there was little or no seating and very cramped.
also too, i was unaware that the AA lounge was now closed :-
the departure area is so busy and so crowded, i would love to see the airport make that whole area move friendly and entertaining and comfortable.
many of us get to the airport 2 or 3 hrs prior to departure and waiting in those crying rooms is lousy.
if there were things to do (aside from the 2 bars) once you go trhu us customs, it would give a win win situation. the airport would see some income and the travelers would have options.
