Airports are usually places in which you want to spend as little time as possible. Sadly, that's not often the case when you're traveling. Author Alain de Botton would disagree. He loves airports.

So much so, that he spent a week living and working in one. The result is a new book called A Week at the Airport. Alain de Botton joins Madeleine to talk about the delights we're missing.
