Best airport amenity: Wi-Fi or rocking chairs?

I got Caught in Boston magnet

What with my appointment to see how the new make-your-own ice-cream machine works and the three hours I spent cooling my heels waiting for a friend’s flight to arrive, I ended up spending a lot of time at Boston Logan International Airport last week.

That was fine with me. The ice-cream was yummy. The Wi-Fi was free. And there were plenty of comfortable rocking chairs to sit in.

Most of the airport’s rocking chairs are plain white models, but a fair number of the chairs have been transformed into colorful works of art.  Next week, there will be even more: the airport is having a reception to celebrate the addition of 19 new art-adorned rocking chairs to the fleet.

We’ve put in a request for photos, so stay tuned.

Art rocker unveiled at Lambert-St. Louis International Airport

Here’s a photo of the “art rocker” unveiled today at Lambert- St. Louis International Airport (STL).

The seat of “Saint Louis Rocks,” by artist Rich Brooks, features piano keys; the back sports a guitar. Piano foot pedals are incorporated into the piece, which also sports an image of the St. Louis

The chair is on display in the airport’s Main Terminal Ticketing Hall just above the C/D security checkpoint at the “Music Spot.”

60 other ‘regular’ blue rockers were added to the airport’s collection of 70 blue rockers today as well.

Rock on!

Pianist Ron Krausch at the “Music Spot” (Ticketing Hall);

Guitarist Stuart Johnson at the Main Terminal’s “Meeting Place” in Baggage Claim;

Guitarist Gregg Hayne at the East Terminal Baggage Claim.

Along with 60 new blue rocking chairs, Lambert will unveil one special rocker ( a chair, not a performer) that artist Rich Brooks has transformed into a fun and quirky tribute to music.
