My sister and I will have a long wait at the Newark Airport early in the morning. She smokes but doesn't walk well due to arthritis and can't walk long distances to go back outside and through Security again once she's inside. I know the airport allows smoking in the bars, but most don't open until at least 9:00 a.m. Anyone know of a bar/smoking area that does open earlier? We will be in Terminal C. Our airline, Continental, has a VIP lounge in the airport, but there's no smoking there.
As a non-smoker, I know many people's solution will be: "Too bad, tough it out. Quit smoking." Unfortunately, those suggestions are not realistic in this case. Any help to find a smoking area and make this a less stressful trip would be appreciated.
