You know what we didn't hear in quite a while?

Yup: bad news from BER.

Not exactly news this time, but pretty much a confirmation of my previous post. The external experts have leaked details from their latest report, and the list of critical problems is getting longer, not shorter. Current count is well beyond 11,000 individual items.

New on the list are nice details like the cable shafts underneath the terminal ceiling being fastened with non-fireproof plastic plugs. So if a cable would catch fire, the plugs would melt and the heavy shafts would come crashing down into the terminal hall.

The experts don't think the amount of problems can be brought under control and recommend at least a partial demolition and reconstruction of the building.

Naturally, nobody expects the airport to open in 2020 anymore. Even 2021 may be out of reach.
Yes, the new EU copyright directive is that stupid.

Had they (well, not "they" - someone with a clue) started work on T2 as soon as it became apparent that this thing would be beyond capacity*, it would be open by now.

*For "capacity", read "salvation".

For it is the number of a man; and its number is One hundred threescore and twelve.

That'll be more to read than all current and future volumes of 'Game of Thrones'.
