    I've flew out of Manchester a few times this year and it got me thinking, it generally has to be one of the most poorly run airports in Europe (out of all that are a decent size)

    I've been to a good few shockers in my time but Manchester seems so dour, desperately in need of a refurb and some of the most rude security staff I've had the displeasure to meet.

    Without a doubt in my mind. My wife is thinking she’d rather get to London with the two kids and fly from standtead than fly back from Manchester in the summer.

    No, Cork airport is the worst in Europe. Anyone who thinks otherwise obviously hasn't been to Cork airport.

    You've never been to JFK.

    Security staff there are disgraceful.

    That's a good shout I'd repressed that memory I think, horrific queues as well on both visits I've had.

    Charles De Gaulle of the major ones makes Heathrow T3 look like a place for a holiday.

    You are now conscious of your breathing.
    In and out of there all the time, never had a problem. Bit small but always quick to get through.
     
  9. T1 makes it a contender, but Luton is even worse I reckon.

    Rome has a nice airport, let's get one like that.

    I didn’t realise you had planes. And you’re wrong, Prestwich Airport is the worst in Europe. They employ the cunts Manchester deem sociopathic assholes and the propeller twirlers at Cork.

    When you enter it, you feel as if you have walked into a museum of how airports should never have been. Or should be again.
