Airport Terminology Can Cause You to Get Lost

It’s every directionally challenged person’s nightmare: not being able to find your gate at the airport and missing your plane.

In a recent article on, frequent flyer Doug Kennedy recounts a frustrating experience at one major US airport, trying to find “Terminal D”, mysteriously missing from most of the signs and maps he consulted.

His tale is a familiar one to anyone who’s ever been lost – feeling panicked, asking directions, but not being able to get help. After a long, scrambling journey, he finally got to the right terminal, just in time to make his plane.

But here’s the rub: it wasn’t “Terminal D” he needed after all, it was “Concourse D”.

Has anything like this ever happened to you?

If you’re directionally challenged you need the award-winning book, Directional Sense: How to Find Your Way Around, by Janet R. Carpman and Myron A. Grant.
