    That video was useless, they could have explained how payment works and the minimum and maximum rental length. What happens if you overstay what you paid for. Also, it looks more like a bread box than a garage door, the garage door comparison was weak. Do the pods lock once you are inside. If so what happens if you get stuck is there a panic button or intercom for help. Whats time timeframe for Internet and power outlets. Will Internet and power cost extra and if so how much.

    12.50$ an hour and it doesn’t come with a pillow.

    One should hope this doesn’t get introduced in any other airports. Suddenly passengers won’t be allowed to nap for free while waiting for their delayed or transferred flight, but instead pay exorbitant costs when companies unexpectedly make them wait for long periods far away from home.
