Last week I questioned the opportunity for making money in an airport. Why aren't more people offering services for the hundreds of people sitting around waiting for their flight? Since then I've Had my eyes peeled. Until now, I had only seen a barber shop in DFW (which really deserves a picture... I'm not quite sure who would trust their hair to this place). But many airports are offering much more.
I stumbled upon the XpresSpa under construction at DFW. It turns out that this isn't a new trend. Citysearch has a list of the top 10 airport spas. There are also the coin operated massage chairs, internet kiosks, and the overly obvious admirals clubs, the Singapore airport even has a sleeping lounge. Come to think of it, the restaurants, bars, and even news stands act as outlets for wasting time, but I'm still intrigued my the new approaches.
