Right now, I’m in Charlois airport, just outside Brusells, and I’m bloody thirsty.
As with every airport, you can’t bring liquids past security. Fair enough. Only the absolute bastards at this airport have seen this as an opportunity to swizz and fleece their customers. You can buy a bottle of Coca Cola’s Vittel water for the obnoxious price of… €3.30. There’s no other option. They won’t even give me tap water.
This is just about the worst swizz I have ever seen anywhere – it makes the bad old days of the Celtic Tiger pale into comparison. I declined with all the politeness I could muster. Sickening.
Have you come across a worse swizz?
