Sitting in the business lounge at Amsterdam Schiphol airport right now using the expensive internet that Dutch provider KPN offers here (EUR 6 for 30 min). They should learn from many airports in Asia where internet is available for free. Even Shanghai now offers free wifi in the KLM lounge.
I still cannot retrieve my Spillgroup Asia email, so I checked my RSS feeds instead. And what is the first thing I read online? A China Eastern yet landed at Shanghai’s Hongqiao airport yesterday, and bursted 4 tires while doing this. The whole airport was closed for 5 hours because of their almost crash-landing. Not the first time this happens to China Eastern, in May last year they manage to burst 12 tires on one airplane. China Eastern has a horrible reputation anyway (remember their crash in Baotou two years ago, and I try to avoid it when flying.
I also came across an interesting article by Micah Sittig about the translation of movie titles into English. The latest James Bond (the first to be shown in China) is called Casino Royale. But because gambling is not allowed in China, it was renamed to 007??????, which Micah translates as “007’s War on Casino Royale”!
