Talk:Sydney Airport

I read this a few times.. still not sure what it means? (and I have used this terminal quite a few times)

"If you are arriving at terminal 3, don't expect people to be able to get to the gate to meet you on a late arrival as they will have to wait at baggage claim if you arrive after the last departure."

I suspect it means that after the last departure, they close the security screening to enter the gate area. —The preceding comment was added by 202.159.138.231 (talkcontribs)

Guide and Featured Travel Topic?[edit]

I think this could be a good FTT towards the end of the 2018, when a year has passed since our we last featured an airport (Manchester Airport). Currently we have two guide airport articles that haven't been featured yet, but as the last airport was Manchester and the number of American nominees have almost gotten out of hand, neither Heathrow Airport nor Seattle-Tacoma International Airport would be the optimal. Also, this would be our first featured airport from the Southern Hemisphere.

I just added a dynamic map and coordinates for the terminals and hotels. What else needs to be added for the article to achieve guide status so that it could be nominated for FTT? Does it look good already?

Obviously prices and such might not be up to date, but given they can possibly change during the 10 months before the article hits the main page, let's update them later. --ϒpsilon (talk) 09:00, 12 January 2018 (UTC)

I guess I have always thought of airport articles as useful pieces that supported other articles (for example Sydney) rather than being a FTT in themselves. Andrewssi2 (talk) 20:18, 19 January 2018 (UTC)
I haven't worked a lot on airport articles but improving Sydney Airport and making it a guide and FTT quality sounds like a good idea. Gizza (roam) 01:13, 20 January 2018 (UTC)
No more suggestions? I'll upgrade it to guide and nominate it to see what happens. ϒpsilon (talk) 10:42, 28 January 2018 (UTC)
