Kai Tak Airport woes

I’ve just come across this cutting while clearing out old files

It brought back many memories of struggling through the hot and humid airport terminal with a young family in tow.

And being arbitrarily “bumped off” over-booked China flights when it was imperative to arrive that day or the next for business meetings. China Southern still owes me refunds for a number of “denied boarding” events from over 25 years ago.

On wet days trying to get a taxi from the airport. Forget it!

Luckily, in latter days, then living in nearby Argyle Street, I could trundle my suitcase along the pavements to home.

Zoom in to read the text. Enjoy!!
