Now, that sounds pretty reasonable up front, but consider a 3-hour nap at this rate. That would cost 30 Euros, or just over $40. That's the equivalent of a $266/night hotel room, assuming the semi-standard 20-hour hotel room purchase, checking in at 3 p.m. and out at 11 a.m. (40/3 = 266/20). Is $266 a night a budget-friendly rate? Not so much.
So, in all the excitement over the chance to get under the covers at the airport, we forgot to ask the million dollar questions: How much are we willing to pay for it, and do the current options leave out budget travelers? We've talked about this before, the fact that airports in remodel mode tend to forget about those of us counting our pennies.
The silver lining, we suppose, is that as business and upscale travelers move into the lounges and rent-a-beds, we'll be able to upgrade from the floor to stretching out on the seats next to the gate.
