Flying seems to be increasingly designed as a shopping experience. Airports are like shopping malls but worse; at least when visiting a mall you can usually go directly to your destination shop. However even without intentionally entering one of the myriad of shops in modern airports, flying today requires running a shopping gauntlet. To get to your plane, you are forced to walk through shops lined with perfume spraying ladies. Once on board your plane, in addition to insanely overpriced food, you are offered lottery tickets, more perfume and other assorted junk. Finally, after arrival at your destination airport, you often have to walk through another shop to get out of the security area. Who the heck needs so many shopping opportunities? Today, it seems that it’s less about the airports providing flying infrastructure for the airlines and more about the airlines bringing customers to the shopping malls (err airports).
