Dispatches from Dubai :: ATW Daily News
Big: as big as Heathrow and Chicago O'Hare

Quote:
Plans for Dubai's new Jebel Ali Airport were unveiled at the Dubai Air Show, and if the world's carriers are shaken by the current infrastructure, the new airport will be major earthquake in airline boardrooms.The airport will measure 140 sq. km., 10 times the area of Dubai International and as big as London Heathrow and Chicago O'Hare combined.

What's truly bizarre are the plans for the "Airport City" to surround the place. Who in their right minds would choose to live on the final approach of an airport twice as big as O'Hare? And, no doubt, pay a vast amount of money to do so?
