things lost at airport

We’ve all had that sinking feeling when you step on the plane, or in the taxi departing the airport where you realise there’s something missing.

Does your airport offer dedicated breastfeeding facilities?

Back in 2015, we ran an experiment with airports in the UK and Ireland and in June 2019, we ran it again to compare results. Initially, we wanted to see if UK and Ireland airports were loud and proud tweeters, or simply the begrudging “we tweet because we have to” kind of crowd. Secondly, we didn’t just want to ask them some benign question that no one cared about; we wanted to ask them something that really mattered. Something that’s not always obvious from a quick trip to their website.

So we asked 28 UK and Irish airports via Twitter:

“Do you have dedicated mother and baby rooms for nursing mums?”

The results, needless to say, were very interesting. Below, you’ll find the 2015 results compared to the same experiment carried out in June 2019 to see if there were any changes or developments in the answers. Read More
