Q. Congestion on the roads at John Wayne Airport can be reduced. It would be so much easier to find a traveler if the airport just painted numbers or letters on the big pillars along the outer sidewalk by the terminal. Also, I have waited outside the airport in my car and had the person call me on a cell phone after picking up luggage. I was there in less then three minutes and didn't drive around in circles.

A. Hugh, could your travelers just wear a hot-pink suit and a purple boa for a while?

Jenny Wedge, an airport spokeswoman, said better signs there are "being considered as part of our overall Improvement Program.''

As to a cell-phone-waiting lot – like Long Beach Airport has – John Wayne doesn't have room for one, Wedge says.

"However, visitors picking up passengers can wait in our short-term spaces for no charge in any of our terminal parking structures,'' she adds.
