倫敦希思羅機場第五號航站樓星期四正式商業運作,第一天的運作錯誤百出,有報章語帶相關地把"不治之症"(Terminal illness)這個詞用於所謂的"航站樓病患"。
《每日郵報》說,行李登記取消、行李失蹤、電梯失靈、68個航班取消,都在耗資43億英鎊的五號航站啟用第一天發生。
《泰晤士報》預測,這個周末出外度假的人們將面臨進一步的混亂。
《金融時報》報道,該報兩名記者也使用了五號航站樓,結果一人的行李去向不明﹔另一人的航班被取消。



chairlift (technically, an elevated passenger ropeway), is a type of aerial lift, which consists of a continuously circulating steel cable loop strung between two end terminals and usually over intermediate towers, carrying a series of chairs. They are the primary onhill transport at most ski areas (in such cases referred to as 'skilifts'), but are also found at amusement parks, various tourist attractions, and increasingly, in urban transport.

例:
Summer 1957 was a hot one, wrote the Berliner Zeitung. But soaring temperatures didn't keep some 1.4 million people from visiting the Interbau exhibit in Berlin.
When the show drew to a close in late September, 900,000 people had viewed the Hansa neighborhood alone and 375,000 had ridden the chair-lift specially built for the first Interbau event, added the Berlin paper.
