Airports celebrate mittens, Peeps, new terminals, and the Super Bowl match-up

We spent the weekend gathering up as many social media postings we could find that featured airport-themed images of Bernie Sanders and his mittens.

If you missed that, or want to see what we can up with, find the Stuck at the Airport #BernieMittens meme archive here.

You may have also missed our Airport Amenity of the Week. Some weeks we have a lot of airport amenities in the running. Last week, this table full of free Peeps at Lehigh Valley International Airport (ABE) in Allentown, PA was hands down the winner.

If you have a cool new airport amenity to nominate during this week, let us know.

We were also heartened to see some airports posting previews of future terminals. Thank-you Portland International Airport (PDX) and Nashville International Airport (BNA) for giving us some new spaces to look forward to.

And Tampa International Airport (TPA) and Kansas City International Airport (KCI) are very excited about the teams that will be playing in the Super Bowl this year.

Classic Cars at KCI Airport

Here’s a great example of an airport getting involved with the community in a fun way:

On Saturday, October 4th from 4-8 pm, Missouri’s Kansas City International Airport will host its fourth annual “Cruise Night”

The free event will feature a display of hundreds of classic, muscle and special interest cars and a bevy of prizes, including a Richard Petty Driving Experience “Ride Along,” airline tickets, hotel stays, dinners, rental cars, gasoline cards and more.  Here’s a link for more information about “KCI Cruise Night.”
