Hyphenation for the nation

This isn’t major Dunglish and it wasn’t something for Spatiegebruik (Use of spaces), so I decided to give it a go. In any case, they both have mistakes that could be construed as Dunglish. First, ‘service-desk’ is wrong. The other two hyphens are fine. As for the other, ‘air rail’ should be hyphenated (it is a temporary compound word) and what’s with the ‘to’? Yes, it is nitpicking and it is Friday!

    Wouldn’t “Air-Rail Check-In” be a single word in Dutch?
