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.

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?”
