|Lego City Airport from Amazon|
This Lego City set includes an airplane, airport terminal along with arrival & departure signs, crew and passengers. It has a revolving door which is pretty neat, a VIP lounge, a baggage claim area and a check-in area complete with an x-ray machine.
There is even a baggage cart in this set to allow you to transfer the bags from check in to the airplane and from the airplane to the baggage claim area.
There are 5 lego mini figures in this Lego City Airport set and they are a pilot, flight attendant, steward, service man and passanger.

Now although I feel that this is a great set and would be loved by any Lego fan the biggest disappointment to me is the lack of mini figures. Honestly if I went to an airport and found I was the only person there to catch a flight , well that's never happened! Luckily when it comes to passengers you can use mini figures from other sets.
Let's look at airport staff next. You do have a pilot and stewardess so that's good and I have been on smaller planes where that is all the staff, but in the actual airport? That's a different matter. We have one person to do passport control, check baggage, issue tickets, answer any enquiries, work in the control tower etc. When it comes to outside there is only one person to drive the baggage out to the plan, load the plane, check the engine and fill up the fuel as well as signalling the plan to direct it when taking off and taxi-ing in.
Having said all this about the mini figures I guess it's a great excuse to buy some more!
There are lots of Lego City sets available and I do have to admit that Lego City is by far my favorite theme:
This Lego City set contains 662 pieces and once completed provides hours and hours of fun (much like the rest of the Lego City range). The fire station is fully manned with a whole shift on duty at any given time
Lego City is a hive of activity as new buildings have been approved by council - have you seen everything that's happening on the Lego City Construction Site? It's lots of fun with Lego Rollers, Lego Cranes, Lego Dozers and more
