If there's one thing about food establishments in the airports that I totally hate, is that they tend to have monopoly-like powers. Prices are always jacked up and the food quality doesn't always commensurate with the increased prices. Like O'Briens at the budget terminal. We had a quick bite here before boarding the plane to Phuket. The Ham and Cheese Toastie ($9.90) with cheddar, red onion and tomato sounded a lot better than it turned out. I mean, I think even my 6-year old nephew can whip this sad little sandwich up on his own.
I couldn't believe a slab of plain picnic ham and melted cheddar slapped between toasted white bread cost almost ten bucks.
