33 Page: 33 © 2015 iclployalty.com Women “More free & comfortable places to hang out - Dubai airport for example has a section of flat loungers so you can have a nap if you have a long lay over.. I would be encouraged to go and have coffee or a drink if there was a comfortable sofa.” “Handbags” “More options in terms of places to eat including fast food and things to take on the plane plus more high street brands rather than the focus on luxury” “Family security fast-track” Men “There is no need to research what will be available in an airport via web or mobile, you can guarantee there will be a Costa, Starbucks, Pret etc etc giving the illusion of choice when in fact it's all the same thing.” “Massage, travelling is stressful” “I'd value a free/open wi-fi, I hate to pay for a service that I consider basic like the water.” “More opportunities to buy flowers on arrival!” “More food shops, less high end handbag shops.” “Better 'takeaway' services to bring healthier meals/sandwiches/snacks on flights”
