DFW and SDF Airport's goofy Carpet Problems and Solutions

Carpet Issue at the Airport | www.TheGhousediary.com

Wednesday, January 13, 2016, SDF/ DFW airports – It’s amazing how little attention the airport authorities pay to what they do. For example, both at the DFW Airport and Louisville Airport, they have replaced a patch of carpet that was worn out; the problem is the new carpet.
The old carpet still occupies some 80% of the known floor area in the terminals, but where the two terminals meet, they have replaced it with plush new carpet.

When you drag your baggage, it moves smoothly on its wheels on the old carpet, which is commercial grade and sturdy.  But when you hit the intersection, where the new carpet is placed, and the suitcase either falls, or stumbles until you catch it.  The new carpet surface is plush and you simply cannot drag the suit case… I have put up with the crap for far too long, and it is time to inform the people to go back and place sturdy carpet.  

I stood at the terminal intersection as in the picture, and attempted to interview frustrated passengers, but everyone was running to catch the plane… no one comes a few minutes early anymore?

But if had carried a sign that announced the name of a TV Channel, I would have recorded a video of the flooring problem at the two airports. It is too damn frustrating. I will not take this up with the Airport Authorities and see if they care. If not, I will have to get that on camera or turn the media people over there.

Where I'm standing, two different carpets are seamed together, the carpet behind me is cushiony and nice to walk, but hard to drag the luggage or run in a hurry, the one ahead of me is old but great to roll the luggage or dash thru it.

Almost every one literally cursed when they moved from the old carpet to the new one, the bag would not move, fall or spin.  

Thank you,
