There are two fundamental problems concerning airport complaint hotlines:
1. In general, the number is a well-kept secret. The airport authorities
should be informing the public on an ongoing basis to ensure that
everyone knows that they _can complain and where to complain to if they
feel like it. Lord knows they have the means to publicize the number.
2. The airport authorities make no commitment/promises whatsoever as to
what they will do if they receive x number or 10x, or 30x number of complaints.
