Enormous improvements have been made since we were last there. Quite a long walk from the plane, though, to the main airport; we had had the use of the little train the last time, as I recall.

Me cancelaron mi vuelo sin avisarme me hicieron ir al aeropuerto gastar mucha plata para el traslado al aeropuerto y cuando llego me avisan el mismo dia q mis vuelos estaban cancelados el vuelo salia pero nos cancelaron la compra del boleto a nosotros. Una vergüenza y encima no nos dejaban comprar con tarjeta a pesar de que el error es de ustedes encima desde internet nos permitió hacer el check in online teniamos los asientos todo y nos mandan un mail diciendo que esperemos la tarjeta de embarque. Una vergüenza esta aerolínea nunca mas la voy a tomar ni a aconsejar.

I would have used a zero if this was possible. This was not a cheap flight to begin with and if I had conceded that a computer bag would not fit in their receptacle would have been £50.00 more expensive. I paid more for 3Kg overweight in my hold luggage that I paid for the bag to be in the hold in the first place. Absolutely awful service from the Gate staff who were more intent on charging naive passengers than on boarding the aircraft. Never use these people !!!!! This experience cost me more than my International flight to Africa the next day. Daylight robbery undertaken by unfriendly staff. Get a grip of these people.

Nowhere near enough seating. people were sat on the floor and in the corridors and many were sitting in the cafes long after they finished eating just to get a seat which stopped others eating. There are not enough places to eat for the volume of people. Security staff were great but LGW has the worst security queues in the UK. It is my least favourite airport in the UK.
