Airport lounge design #101

If you get access to an airline lounge it’s because you are flying first class, business class, or you have a lot of points on your frequent flyer card so they give you access to the lounge – even if you are in economy.

In general though, most people flying business class are in that class because they are on business – time is important and having a place to work is important, so take a look at the lounge in São Paulo’s international airport.

Lots of soft chairs, free food, free drinks, and free Internet too. That’s all nice, but there are no power supplies anywhere!

Almost everyone in here is trying to recharge their phone or laptop, and get some work done. There is a steady stream of people circling the room looking for some power, somewhere, anywhere.

The only power is at a workbench, specifically placed there for laptop users and with about 8 places in total… EVERYONE IS USING A LAPTOP IN HERE GUYS!

I guess I won’t have any power left on the plane now, so at least I can enjoy the movies instead of working on board my flight.
