La Guardia Airport NY: Here I Sit, Broken Hearted…. PDF Print E-mail

The newly-installed Jabbrboxes in the terminal resemble upscale versions of coin-operated street telephone booths and public toilets. Of course, in today’s grossly-inflated economy, customers can’t use them for just a nickel or dime.

They’re stations for people who want some private sitting space while waiting for flights. The booths, with see-thru front door glass, don’t include toilets, but do have video screens, Wi-Fi, USB charging, mood lighting and continuous audio flight info. Fees are $10 for 15 minutes, $15 for 30 minutes and $30 for an hour. Not so long ago at those prices, you could've booked a comfy hotel room for 24 hours.
