Reply To: Smokers Alley (aka Heathrow Airport)

Back to Forum


Stockholm has the clean air technology “smoke booths” which are incredible and I defy anyone but the pickiest to suggest that the interior of the airport has any whiff of fag ash.
Dubai also in its first lounge has the same technology or so it seems in that smokers can sit not as pariahs inside the lounge and indeed, next to the food even without tainting the clean…
Dubai “A” terminal forts has a cigar bar… Smoke away inside. And even if you are in economy inside the airport too.
Hong Kong has smoking airside. Hideous but airside.
Singapore, yes Singapore has airside smoking sections. Outside and inside.
Smokers have an expensive addiction which every government benefits from. About time you got a bit less precious about the 2 seconds of fag ash you are inhaling en route particularly as I have just landed in Singapore to the worst psi smoke haze rating which is choking the city and frankly far worse than any few seconds of a cigarette.
Anyone want to suggest Indonesia stop burning their jungles?
