A GAMING LOUNGE IN AN AIRPORT BUILT TO IMPROVE THE PERFORMANCE OF PASSENGERS WHILE WAITING.
Two console-filled lounges have been installed at Dallas Fort Worth Airport in Texas.
Terminal B has 14 individual gaming stations, each with a PlayStation 4 Pro.
Each console is pre-loaded with the latest games, a lounge chair, 43″ 4K TV, premium gaming headphones, charging ports for electronic devices and space to store luggage.
22 gaming stations are available at the terminal E lounge.
Dallas is not the only airport that offers gaming lounges for passengers.
Los Angeles Airport terminals 3 and 6 have the stations, as well as terminal E at Charlotte Douglas airport.
The William P. Hobby Airport in Houston will also receive one in the near-future.
Gaming travellers will have to part ways with their cash if they want to make use of the consoles, with prices ranging from $15.99 (£14) for 30 minutes to $39.99 (£35) for unlimited gaming.
A picture of the gaming room was shared by several users on social media. RedditSome of the most impressive.
One wrote: “I found this when I had an 8 hour layover. Helped pass the time for sure.”
Another one: “Have a layover there on my upcoming flights this month both ways. Very cool to see.”
Some were however put off by the high price and other issues.
One wrote: “I’m not paying what would be at least 2 months subscription cost of any game just to take up 1 hour at the airport. Rich gamer section.”
An additional: “Those controllers are gonna be real gross.”
A traveller revealed five things that you can get at airports for free if you don’t want to spend money.
Tiktoker @girlvsglobe demonstrated how she spends her time waiting for flights and doesn’t have to spend a dime.
You can find WiFi, water and soft play areas as well as magazines and beauty products. There are also testers available in the duty-free lounge for travelers to test out.
Airports also offer luggage tags for free, so that travelers can mark their bags.
However, some people have warned about putting home addresses on it – as it puts your house at risk if the bag is stolen.
Travel expert USA Today: “Don’t list your home address on luggage tags.
“Play it safe by using electronic luggage tags, or by listing only your basic contact information on a luggage tag.
“Virtually everyone within an airport can see the information written on your suitcase tag, so limiting the personal information while providing enough for the airline to return lost luggage is key.
“Most experts agree that if you can avoid listing your home address, you will be less likely to be targeted for a robbery while you are away.”
