If I was of the "hot coffee on lap" kind of suer, I'd look forward to prosperity... but I am not. That said, I want to warn others of this problem. so they can avoid it and NOT sue over it. I had to fly into Phoenix for a meeting and went via Continental. My return flight to IAH had me leaving at 5:35p, but I got done with my meeting at noon... so I went to the airport early to try and catch an earlier flight. Anyway, after not wanting to pay an additional $25 for changing to an earlier flight, I found a nice quiet corner of my gate area and leaned back onto the wall and slept. I awoke to head skin pain and the smell of something burning.... As it turns out, the metal bars/dividers which connect the large wall panels were way, way too hot to touch.... and had burned my scalp while I was sleeping. We are not talking anything more than minor blisters but, the bars were too hot to touch with your finger for more than a second. Regardless, I warned other passengers as to the danger and and Continental gate crew, who seemed to not be suprised nor impressed, and moved to a better seat. Has anyone who has traveled through PHX and visited gate area 6A through 8, noticed this problem during a bright sunny day? Although I can't imagine most folks getting inujured by continuing contact with the metal bars long term, someone with a disabillity or disease state which renders their extremities as numb might be inujured?
