The airport confusion

Tuesday, May 19th, 2015

Frankfurt airport confuses me. I never know when I’ll have to go through security and when it’s only going to be border control. This means that I don’t really like flying through it as I don’t know if I can buy stuff at airports on the way in and Fraport is losing money. Same thing goes for shops at the airport – even store clerks don’t know if I need to clear security again. And I don’t like the idea of throwing away a 50 EUR bottle of rye bourbon.
If they offered a service that would, based on the date of travel, origin and destination airports, tell me which gate I might arrive at and fly out of as well as what kind of controls I’d have to go through and which shops are on my way I’d like it more.
