Whats the matter: "However, the most alarming trend to strike airports in the past half century has nothing to do with games, pillows, suicide hijackings or erotic pat-downs from TSA. No, the most troubling thing about airports is noise. If American airports need to borrow one idea from their foreign counterparts, it’s that passengers need not be assailed by a continuous loop of useless and redundant public address announcements. Security alerts, boarding calls, traffic and parking directives all playing simultaneously. At some airports this sonic layering is unbearable. I have heard up to four announcements playing at once, rendering all of them unintelligible in a hurricane of noise."
