" The ride went through smoothly: on Sunday morning it is no problem to drive from P. on highway A11. He didn't need to wait at the entrance; at D. he has paid the toll by a credit card, had circumvented P. by beltway and has driven to the airport R. by A1 road.
He had parked his car on level -2 (passageJ), inserted his parking ticket into the valet and hasted away to Air F. check-in counters. After he has delivered his suitcase, with the sigh of relief (suitcase had exactly 20kg of weight), he handed his ticket to the flight attendant, asking her for a aisle seat in a smoking compartment. After checking him in a computer, smiling flight attendant shake head without speaking and gives him his ticket back together with a boarding pass. "Boarding is in sub terminal B at 6 p.m.", she notices. "
