    i wonder which came first, this or the area in some french airports in which friends and reletives of traverllers can drop off those who are flying and kiss them goodbye. In such areas, the very short permitted parking time—a minute or two—is just enough time for someone to “kiss and fly” as these carparks are labelled.
