New airport cell-phone lot: Is it "convenient and well-lit"?

The PR folks thought twice about saying so.

Philadelphia International Airport blasted out a press release this morning about tomorrow's ribbon-cutting for a cell-phone waiting lot, a boon for the motorists being ticketed for idling on access roads and ramps.

Ah, but the document's revisions were left in for all to see, and for some reason the phrase "convenient and well-lit area where drivers can safely wait to pick-up passengers arriving at the Airport" was deleted.

The release now simply reads: "The new Cell Phone Waiting Lot is free and located on Airport property. It provides spaces for 150 vehicles and is a one-minute drive to the baggage claim areas."

So is it safe, convenient, and well-lit?
