An autobiographical introduction that provides a unique frame for studying the cross-border movement of the “semi-privileged” air travelers in Asia. The chapter argues that these passengers, and the infrastructure systems that they use, have been omitted from urban scholarship due to the methodological and conceptual limitations of the existing literature. Through an analysis of three key theoretical concerns—mobility, infrastructure, and the everyday—it outlines an alternative, humanities-based methodology based on mapping, interviews, and site analysis that is more applicable to studying urban development in a contemporary Asian context.
