Loos were not as clean as Edinburgh airport
Circuitous route to departures through shops was irksome, and I find that overwhelming smell of perfumes etc physically nauseating
would never fly with Fly Be again. I will take Easy Jet from Bristol (longer journey) for a fifth of the price. FlyBe pricing is a disgrace.
Both airports weee in good condition
Long queue at security
Very good prompt and concise
Absolutely awful place, stairs filthy, place looks as though it is stuck in the 1970's
Security was longer than usual but I do understand that national security is imperative. I didn't understand why some people were being taken to the front of the queue
