What PDX Needs Is...

A recent article in USA Today got me thinking. What kinds of amenities does PDX need to be a truly premier international airport? The article lists the top-10 amenities the best airports in the world offer. Among them: live music, wine bars, art galleries, napping pods, free wireless internet, laptop chargers, day spas, and convenience stores.

PDX does pretty well in some of those categories. The Port brings in live musicians during most major travel periods... including Spring Break.

PDX also has a wine bar... along with a sushi bar... and a Stanford's... so travelers are covered when they're forced to hang out. Those of us who spend time on our laptops at the airport know about the free wireless internet... one of the best investments the Port has made.

But what about a place to take a nap? How about a place to grab a massage?

What would you like to see changed or added at PDX? E-mail me and let me know... and maybe we'll see some top-shelf additions to Oregon's busiest airport.
