AnthonyDunn – 06/06/2013 14:49 GMT : In German restaurants and bars, there are ostensibly smoking areas but as these often don’t have effective/efficient air filtration, as a non-smoker, I end up inhaling their filth when I am eating or drinking.
You reminded me of a correspondent to HK’s main English language paper when our anti-smoking laws were introduced. “Having a no-smoking area in a restaurant is as effective as having a no-pissing area in a swimming pool”…
From my own experience and rather selfish perspecftive I don’t like airport smoking-rooms. I remember seeing them in Bangkok and numerous airports in China, full of blue haze. The stench on the clothes of people who had been in there was unbelievable, and very unwelcome if seated close by on the plane
