Airport in Dhaka, Bangladesh

Flying GMG Airlines between Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and Kathmandu, Nepal, requires an eight hour layover in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Besides having to wait in a disgustingly filthy, smoke-filled transit lounge, in an airport that reeked of diesel fuel and paint fumes, we also were issued boarding passes only through to Dhaka. After seven hours of waiting, two officials of the airlines appeared with stacks of boarding passes and began yelling out names. Rather than wait until their names were called, passengers rushed to the counter en masse, pushing and shoving in one seething ball, each person trying to get to the front of the crowd. The video was taken after more than half of the passes had been retrieved so it doesn't show the worst of the craziness, but it shows enough to discourage folks from flying GMG through Bangladesh.
