Airport Amusements

In the most cases the passengers have to spend a lot of time in the airport waiting for their planes to arrive and departure. The time of waiting sometimes gets longer as the flights are often delayed or canceled. Some major airports offer their passengers to take part in some amusing or useful activities instead of boring reading the newspapers and endless drinking coffee.
