    At or in

    Hi guys.

    Is it correct to say "There was a man at the airport" or "In the airport"?

    The wider context might decide which one works better.

    Yet another run-on sentence and incorrect capitalisation (SIGH). Will you never learn?

    Re: At or in

    After Rover's corrections, the sentence is correct with either "in" or "at".
