Her article should be nominated for the Man Booker prize.

To have to gumption to claim airports are doing their job as infrastructure is utterly ridiculous. Astronomical charges, permanent traffic holding due to lack of capacity, lack of gates at peak times, ludicrous parking charges, Brisbane being closed due fog, ridiculous terminal designs, illogical high speed taxiways etc

If there was ever an example of a economic model FAILING, I would argue that these airports are it. They do not serve the function they are meant to. Which is to be an airport, which means connecting people in the fastest most economically viable way possible.

What we have in Australia are airports which have absolutely no incentive to operative efficiently. They actually financially benefit from being bad at their primary business. Now name me another industry where you can get away with that?
