Pilots flying out of Calcutta’s Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose International Airport have run into a bit of an issue lately: jackals on the runway. Yes, jackals. Not really an issue at LaGuardia, but a growing problem in Calcutta. While you may complain about expensive parking at O’Hare or a lack of wireless access at your local terminal, at least you’ve never heard a pilot say, "Birds and jackals are the main problem," which is what has been said about the airport in Calcutta. I don’t know why I find the idea of jackals so funny, but I do. And so should you.
