Manchester Airport Reviews
Noisy and unorganized Jun 15, 2011
It was my third time in Manchester Airport; I had been there some years ago when I was going to Bolton but this was the first time where I had to spend 3 hours in their lounge and shop area and it changed my attitude towards this place.
When we landed we were sent the wrong way from the plane; first we had to enter via a staircase but when we came up they said that we had to go down again. When we came down they crew downstairs asked why we came down because we had to go in that way; eventually they opened a door so we could enter the arrival area.
I asked where the transit area was and was told I had to go out of the airport and in again via the security control even though I had a boarding card all the way for Edinburgh. It all seemed a bit unorganized; except for the security control that was quite efficient. At this point I was happy to learn that at least one thing was working.
The lounge and restaurant area was really noisy; the place was built so you could hear every noise that was made at all the different restaurant; it was absolutely not a place where you could relax and take it easy. There were some good shops and some nice places where you could get a beer but it was all too noisy.
