During a recent flight delay at San Francisco Airport we made good use of our extra time with a visit to the XpresSpa — part of a chain of international airport spas. The three of us enjoyed our visit — I got a much-needed pedicure, my husband got a chair massage, and Devon, our 6-year-old, had the best time of all playing with the controls of the vibrating massage chair. Definitely an enjoyable way to wait out a flight delay, plus nail polish dries lightening-fast on an airplane (provided, of course, you can get down the aisle without having someone step on your toes).
We loved our treatments and pricing was reasonable given the airport venue. Manicures start at $20, pedicures start at $35, and neck/back massages start at $25. Check out the list of 32 locations in the US, Mexico, and Europe that are open and/or due to be open in 2009.
