28 minutes from the city to the airport minus the potential traffic jam. But what can one do en route to while away the time? If you're travelling alone, do not talk to self. Most folks in the train sit as far apart as possible. Except if you're family but seeing as it would be cheaper to travel by taxi in a big group you tend to see single travellers here. Talking to strangers isn't done. My ipad was a great companion. It didn't talk back and when I got bored with one topic it allowed a seamless fuss-free switch to a topic of my choice. Meh to those of you without ipads. Go get yourself one now.
