How Fuckin Shite Is Edinburgh Airport

Recommended Posts

As the title says. How bad does this place have to become before something is done about it. The security is a fuckin disaster zone. New owners who give zero fucks about their core purpose of getting people off the ground. Maybe folk would spend more money in their extended shopping mall if they could get into the fuckin place.

Landed on Sunday about midday, no probs, but there was a huge queue nearly going outside the building for checking in. Don't know what that was about.

Never had an issue at Edinburgh Airport. Longest I have waited was about 30 mins when it was packed.

All airports are shite but Edinburgh is a delight compared to Gatwick or Heathrow. I'd probably not bother going if I had to go through those 2 airports.

Only had one experience of the place three weeks ago and was absolutely fine. Much like P45 said, Heathrow is what real Airport Hell feels like when it's at peak periods.

Tend to go through Edinburgh Airport 4 or 5 times a year when coming home, found it to be easy enough for the most part, but I rarely seem to get flights that aren't either leaving at 8am or landing at 11pm.

Since the new security went in it is a shambles.It started off bad,then seemed to settle down but now with the holiday flights starting they are queuing people down in the terminal and gradually allowing them up the stairs.You'll notice the up escalator is fenced off now as they can't cope with everybody up there now.It worked much better with the old system.

Always done the job for me. Last time I used it was a few months ago going to and from Berlin Schonefeld and the former was state of the art in comparison. Surprised what a complete dump Berlin Airport was. Edinburgh's by no means the worst.

The in is fine it's the out that doesn't work very well now.One girl in the daft queue downstairs was sent back to the end after waiting for 20 minutes in said queue as her flight was over an hour later.Bet the shops love it not.

I don't like Edinburgh Airport. Security is usually a nightmare and it's always really busy. I know that latter is true of many airports, but Edinburgh always seems worse than others. Probably because it deals with a fair volume of passengers but is pretty small.

Then again, I'm a weirdo and actually like Heathrow - never had a problem there. Gatwick, on the other hand, is shite. I absolutely fucking hate that place.

Its a barn in a field with a wee strip of tarmac and a 50/50 chance of leaving somewhat close to leaving time!

Basically, it is what it is, let's no polish a jobbie!

Went to the Wetherspoons once and they did me a breakfast of pancakes, bacon and square sausage as a special request. Some boys.
