The lines to go through security were longer than usual at Denver International Airport this morning (Saturday, Jan 12, 2019). The government shutdown is having big effects on the travel industry too.
I’m not flying business class. I'm not a high roller. But I have access to the Wingtips lounge in Terminal Four —and more than 1,000 airport lounges in 500 cities around the world.
Even after midnight the lounges are busy, as Dubai is a major gateway and global connection point. (There are appealing packages from Emirates for those who want to stop over for a day or two.)
