Airport Announcements

AirportsOn Airport announcements – I’m not sure whether I should be simplistic and attribute this difference to East vs. West.

  • Most Airports in Asia: “This is the final boarding call for Mr. X. Please proceed to Gate 123 for boarding immediately”
  • Amsterdam Airport (which I just transited in): “Last call for Mr. X, you are delaying the flight. We will proceed to offload your luggage immediately.”
