Actor Hugh Dancy writes reviews on airport carpeting and was once in fact suspected as a terrorist because of his intense interest in airport carpeting. I have assembled Hugh Dancy’s sometimes scathing, sometimes poignant, always insightful observations about airport carpeting.

  • EDI: “In December 2007, the 83 crew and passengers of EasyFlight 147 were lost somewhere between Gates 3 and 4 of the main terminal of EDI. Despite extensive searches in the airport’s washrooms, restaurants and duty-free shops, no trace of them was found. In January 2009, three survivors of the lost flight staggered out into the airport’s main corridor from behind a decorative potted plant. There were clearly in shock, and violently refused to walk upon EDI’s carpet, claiming it was a portal that had thrust them into a horrifying parallel universe from which only three of them had managed to escape.”
  • FLR: “The Italian conspiracy against carpeted airport floors continues at FLR. What are we to make of the Italians? How can a country that is renowned for its love of the sensual pleasures prove so lacking when it comes to airport carpeting? Has it got something to do with the mother thing?”

  • PVG: “The Chinese are like a man who arrives late to the party but brings with him a case of champagne, a box of cigars, and a flock of giggling debutantes. While so many of the world’s airports are ripping up their carpets, China has embraced the medium with under-footed majesty. Witness the modernist masterpiece that is PVG. Its palette—tasteful beiges, muted earth tones, grey blues—and streamlined pattern—seeming to reference the architectural lines of Eero Saarinen, Mies van der Rohe, and Arne Jacobsen—are unashamedly mid-century. But while its influences are undoubtedly European (how fitting for Shanghai, that most international of Chinese cities), the overall feel of the carpet is undeniably Chinese. It is a carpet that knows what it wants, and gets it too.”

  • YYZ: “In 1960, the Toronto airport authorities were given a choice—either spend the remains of their airport construction budget on a flashily designed carpet by a world renowned designer, or spend it all on obtaining a snappy IATA airport code. The Canadians chose the latter and the airport now has one of the snappiest codes—YYZ—of any airport in the world. The carpet is a bit boring though.”

  • IOM: “The three-legged triskele-infused design of IOM’s carpet hearkens to the ancient beliefs of this isolated island’s inhabitants. When IOM first opened in 1929 the superstitious islanders, unfamiliar with modern technology, believed that the propellers were magical legs that literally ran the aircraft into the air. This belief still persists to this day, as does the islanders’ belief that nothing rhymes with the word ‘spoon’.”

  • DUB: “What are we to make of DUB? Strangely reminiscent of LGA, this similarity might refer to the strong links between Ireland and America. Then again, it could refer to a deal done out of the back of a truck in the dead of night on an unmarked country road deep in Fingal.”

  • SLC: “It is a curious tenet of the Mormon faith that the rectangle holds an almost divine stature within its teachings. No-one, however, is entirely sure why this is. Some point to the fact that by the time Joseph Smith originated the movement in 1820, all the good shapes—the crescent, the cross, the wheel—had already been taken. Whatever the case, SLC wears its holy symbol proudly and with a certain panache.”

  • PWM: “Why do we not call our airports “jetports” as Portland International does? Then we could say things like, “Sorry, I must dash, I’ve got to get to the jetport,” or, “Can you pick me up at the jetport?” or, “Aliens have attacked the jetport!” Which would be really cool. As it is, PWM remains one of a handful of jetport carpets in existence, and with its Cubist repetitions and calm, controlled palette, it doesn’t disappoint.”

True fact: it took me an eternity to connect the concept of “Hugh Dancy, who acts on Hannibal” with my previously extant concept of “Claire Danes’s weirdo husband who does the airport carpet reviews”.
