Money grabbing. Pay for drop off at terminal & pick up. Dispicable behaviour! Forcing clients to pay to use a necessary facility.

Security was chaotic and not well managed. If I had known I would have checked-in my carry on baggage as well. Lesson is to travel light through Manchester Airport Security
