Default Airport TV

I don't have a gripe that there shouldn't be TVs in the airport, more that there is such a cacophony in the airport between the TV, general announcements and gate announcements that you can barely hear your self think.

In the ATL the TV was so loud it almost drowned out the gate announcements. They just seemed like background noise.

Even without TV it is often hard to hear the gate announcements. I think they put the tiniest speakers in the gate area and the really big ones, all over, that keep repeating the "Unattended Bag" announcement.

Also, it drives me nuts when you have two gates, next to each other, and they both make announcements at the same time.

Take care,
Mike

I agree with both comments

I usually head to the gate an hour prior just incase I miss the announcement of when to board
too much noise everywhere
