Airport Adventures: Sana'a Airport

by a traveller

Don't leave the airport without a known reliable contact - a worse fate lies outside!

"Don't go to Sanaa, Yemen!

The airport is crawling with strange military types in a variety of uniforms - all carrying Kalashmakov Rifles or Uzzi-type weapons - none of whom know any foreign languages - and to whom all white faces are alike.  And ubiquitously pointing these weapons at all passengers regardless.  Why?  

Bleak, scary, stark, semi-clean, uncomfortable bucket & hard-chair seats, dark & semi-clean bathrooms, no amenities, poor flight announcement system (you could sit there forever!).
The country is the Islamic kidnapping capital of the world!  Don't leave the airport without a known reliable contact - a worse fate lies outside!

Lufthansa lost my luggage on the incoming flight!  And it turned up in Denver 5 months later via United Airlines!  Figure that one out!  Only a few trousers stolen out of one suitcase. Not going back."
