Alshaya at the airport

Posted by Mark

I’m at the airport right now and I just noticed the Alshaya section past emigration is going to be huge. Their section will have Starbucks, Potbelly and Pinkberry but I just noticed they’ve actually built a second floor on top of the place. Pretty cool.

      it is the same thing.

      • The Real Burhan says:

        It is not the same thing. Emigration is from the country (leaving), immigration is to the country (arriving). “He emigrated from UK to Canada.” vs. “I am immigrating to Canada”.

        In this case, however – its the immigration department.

          Technically, as this is on the top floor where people are leaving the country, it would be the emigration section!

          • The Real Burhan says:

            They name it for the arrivals section – since they don’t call it the ‘emigration terminal’ but the “immigration counter” and “immigration desk”.

    Is this all that area that’s boarded up, or is that something else?

    At least it’s not in the run-down parking lot!

    Can Al-Shaya buy the airport? I want someone else to run it. It’s disgusting.

    And as for Randy’s ” al-shaya for president”, thats just what we need…. Another oligarchic shark running the show!
