Yeah, the 'loose furniture' is a good one.. Quite common in China still, unfortunately, where English translations are either literal or somewhat .. er .. off. I was recently given a menu at a restaurant where I could have ordered "spaghetti coronary" and "singapore fired sheet jelly" (I didn't think spaghetti was THAT bad for you...)

Is it me, or is the gate numbering system also a little bit strange? I can understand the numbering on the alternate side of the terminal, but it will get confusing once you get to the arms at the end.

Apart from that, I LOVE the way this terminal is shaping up...

You know I never really noticed. I think the numbering system for the gates is bad. How on earth are they going to direct passengers on the signs? Very strange. Odd vs Even? Hmm

It will not be the busiest airport in pure passanger number (well, not for now anyways), but rather the largest single terminal building in the world, when finished.

wrong

it will be the largest terminal complex when completed... it's divided into 3 buildings (T3A, 3B and 3C), unlike HKIA whih is a single building

Well, my post was rather to inform Ese del 96 that it has nothing to do with pax numbers but rather actual area size.

Seoul has lower passengers than beijing airport.

Beijing airport has the fastest growth among world major airports. In 2006, it has 48.65million passengers, which place in 9th place in the world. it projects 55million passengers in 2007 and 66million in 2008.

@ Bitxofo

It [the entire terminal complex] has approximately a million square meters of floor area.

This'll make it nearly twice as large as the next largest terminal complex (New Bangkok Suvarnabhumi International Airport's terminal).

@ celestar0

That's too bad. I thought it was more like a million square meters. That'd make it a bit smaller than previously thought. But, eh, who cares...it's still the largest single terminal complex...and it's such a beauty!
