Returned to Leeds Bradford on Thursday afternoon 14/06/12. We were not allowed to disembark from our Jet2 flight from Alicante for 25 minutes after landing (not the Airline's fault). Reason: a flight was boarding and because of airport construction, the two sets of passengers were not allowed to intermix. This is an international airport isn't it and do not passengers embark and arrive at roughly the same time? So, eventually get into the terminal and up several sets of stairs which I noted were giving at least one elderly lady some discomfort. A route march to the very end of the terminal for immigration and finally out into the real world once more. Will only use this airport for convenience and next time will consider Manchester.

Arrived into Leeds - back from Malaga- a fantastic new, well equipped airport in a country struggling in the current economic crisis. Bus broke down on way to airport building. We were all dropped off in the rain and queued to get in through the single door- all got soaked. As usual the escalator was not working - really hard for the elderly on flight. 40 minute queue to go through passport control - quote "due to planes arriving at same time "(as they do every day). Too few immigration officers on duty! No planning - no idea - third world quality.

This used to be a pleasant little airport. However, in recent years it has been taken over by a company determined to squeeze every last penny out of customers. The drop-off area costs £2 simply to enter so many people simply take a chance and drop passengers off on the mini-roundabouts. There is no taxi rank so taxis bringing passengers to the airport cannot get a fare back to the city. The airport taxis are provided by Arrow cabs which are more expensive than local firms (for example £20 to my home instead of the local firm's fare of £10). If you live locally and are flying home, take the number of a local cab firm with you and call them when you leave the plane. The taxi will be waiting for you when you exit the airport. Public transport is poor; there is no train service and the many flights arrive or leave outside the hours of the bus services. The terminal is cramped so it can be difficult, for example, to get through to the lavatories if you are carrying hand luggage. There are shops but the selection is not good and the cafes are crowded so you will not be served quickly. The only advantage of LBA is convenience if you live locally. Manchester is a better airport with a much greater selection of flights.

This is not usually an airport I enjoy using but the staff deserve more than a few words of praise for the way in which they dealt with a much delayed Ryanair flight to Pisa on the 21/4. The flight was delayed by over 3 hours until long after the airport would normally have closed. However, the Executive Lounge staff, the gate staff and even the bar staff did everything in their power to make things tolerable. They had as much reason as us to whinge but they were extremely cheerful and helpful.

The worst airport I have ever used. £2 to stop in a car to drop off or pick up passengers? After checking in be prepared for the long queue for security where you are welcomed by a cheery grunt from staff. Then into the departure lounge where if more than 2 flights have checked in your chances of sitting down are nil. When your flight is called, be prepared for a mad dash to the departure gate but there may be 2 flights using the same gate. On your return, once past passport control you can relax whilst waiting for your luggage to arrive, then fight your way outside to be picked up by someone paying at least another £2 to park. All in all use Manchester, Heathrow, anywhere except LBA.

Used Leeds Bradford Airport Executive lounge as a starting point for a long weekend break in Prague with my wife. To be honest, I felt as though I was entering a building site, as the environment was anything but luxury with all the signs of a project in progress. Yes, work has to be done to improve a facility, but not at the expense of the user. Had I known what I was paying for, I would most certainly have declined. Fine for anyone who wants to fill up on free drink but until the area is sorted with clean carpet and a completed ceiling, I won't be subsidising anyone!

The airport is, generally, okay however the practice of charging motorists £2.00 to drop off or collect passengers is nothing less than bare faced robbery and should never be allowed. This very morning I dropped friends at the airport drop off point, which is within the official car park, and the total time from entering to exiting the car park was 4 minutes. This £2.00 charge has, no doubt, been approved by the airport management committee and shows their total lack of respect or understanding or the general public, their customers. I am disgusted.

Quite possibly the worst airport I've used, you are charged £2 just to drop off in the car which is shocking, the outside of the airport is dismal looking and inside is not much better. Long queues, pushy staff - it was not a pleasant experience using this airport and it'll take a lot for me to use this airport again.

This airport is a dump. £2 charges for drop off are a disgrace, security area was improved but most of the money seems to have gone on the queuing area. The staff numbers don't seem to have increased and the focus appears to be on long queuing times to force people to buy fast track. You are then funnelled into a tiny duty free shop! The departure lounge has insufficient seating. Large areas of the lounge are now occupied by overpriced retail outlets and cafes. If you want a seat, you have to pay for the premier lounge which is not very premiere at all. Signage for gates and facilities are not sufficient and the way in which gates are allocated and boarding is arranged makes for complete chaos if more than 2 flights are boarding at the same time. The place is filthy, the seats, the floors, the walls, the washrooms are all dirty. The way the terminal walkways are laid out and due to cross boarding - they always line us up in the arrivals corridor for nearly 15 minutes before we are chucked out into the elements queuing to board my regular Amsterdam flight. Sadly, I only fly from it now when I have to for work. My holidays I take from Manchester as I can not think of a worse way to start your journey. What the private company is doing to Leeds Bradford airport is a great crime to this once pleasant local airport and the people of Yorkshire. Charges everywhere with no money going back in to our airport!

I have used LBA many times. The main impression this airport gives is that passengers are the least important people. Passengers have to walk the length of a football pitch with baggage from the so called drop off carpark (and get charged £2 for the privilege). Much bigger airports have not stopped passengers being dropped off outside the entrance. Add this to the longest waiting queues at passport control and for baggage. Where have all the seats in the check-in area gone? Not everyone wants to go straight through but there are only about half a dozen seats in the whole area. There used to be a taxi rank outside arrivals where there were plenty of taxis, you now have to go across the football pitch and queue up in the Arrow office to book your taxi and then wait for your taxi to arrive - what a farce!

Peak time Friday in late August no queues for Jet2 check-in. Quick through security (esp comparing Liverpool or Man). Other side there were free tables by windows looking out over runway away from bar and restaurant area so quite relaxed waiting. Jet2 gate queuing area is a bit of a shed but you are not there long. Not surprised at charge for dropping off as the front areas are small and have not grown with the airport.

Cramped and over-crowded. Tatty seats if you can find one. Most space is given over to bars, cafes and a 'Premier Lounge' that has to be paid for. Just to drop someone off for a flight it costs £2. Only one firm of taxis (private hire) are allowed to queue for business.

This tiny little airport charges you for everything, then fails to offer any kind of customer service. To drop off passengers you are charged at least £2. Then there is the car park charge machine. £2.50 for using a credit card to pay. As for customer service, I witnessed incredibly arrogant behaviour from its staff. It was appalling to see. Jet2 had failed to bring over half the customers bags back from Ibiza. No communication to the waiting families. There is no common sense or discretion. Small minded, small airport, rip off mentality.

£2 to travel through the drop off point is a disgrace. I don't want to stop, or take my time (30 mins), I just want to drop someone off. There is minimal notice until you get into the one way system by which time of course, you can't legally turn back. I have never before seen such a blatantly unfair charge at an airport, LBA, you should be ashamed of yourselves.

The introduction of a £2 drop-off or pick-up charge at the nearest car park to the airport is outrageous. The free alternative is half a mile from the terminal, involving a shuttle bus ride. This will lead to people parking outside the airport boundary to wait for flights, and gives the airport a really bad name.

The only positive thing I can really say about LBA is that it is close to where I live. That used to be a great advantage because it meant that I could be dropped off by a relative rather than having to park or get a taxi. My father hadn't expected the charge, and didn't have money with him. It was only due to someone's generosity that he was able to leave the car park. Security and passport control are overly busy, with inconsistent instructions being given to people. When you eventually get to the departure lounge the toilets are dirty, and there is no where to sit. Tables in the upstairs cafe are full of dirty trays and the staff struggle to cope with a queue. So many people were queuing for the shops downstairs that people could not get off the down-escalator causing a pile-up. Getting rid of the shop would make things more pleasant for people, but the cynic in me thinks that would be the last thing to go. When you arrive back and want a taxi there is a strange system. What's wrong with a normal rank like every other airport. LBA used to be a good regional airport, but it has seriously deteriorated in the last few years.

The £2 drop off fee should be the final nail in this dismal Airport, you spend more time walking up steps and then down the other side. It has no rail link and no fast road link, traffic jams all around due to no dual carriage ways. And any wind or Fog and your flights is cancelled anyway.

The new £2 charge simply for driving past the terminal is another nail in the coffin of what used to be a pleasant experience i.e. using a small regional airport. It's a long drag up from the "free" long-stay car park only to find the first terminal doors that you come to are locked! If you do drop off and pay the fee it's still a long way to get inside because of paranoia about security. I have never seen an airport this bad, including Heathrow, Gatwick, Manchester and Geneva. Dreadful in bad weather. It's wrong that traffic wardens should patrol the service roads to enable a private company to extort this rip-off charge from people. Most of the upstairs seating (there isn't any downstairs) has been ripped out to make a bigger cafe, so people clog up all the tables instead, so if you are actually wishing to eat there are no free tables. This was probably a deliberate policy so people will pay to use the lounge. Flying nowadays isn't a barrel of laughs with all the security etc but LBA makes it much worse.

Not a very pleasant experience. My flight was at 9 am and therefore after the main rush but the whole terminal appeared to be jammed with people in corners between shops and bars. Very poorly laid out. The one consolation was that the Business Lounge was a pleasant refuge from all of this. The airport badly needs a terminal capable of handling its passenger load and better road access. With those, it could be a good experience as the staff were uniformly pleasant and helpful.

Arrived only once at LBA. After a long walk from a low cost air park welcomed by a very steep and long staircase plus other mixed obstacles, Then a very long walk to the passport control with a nice view of the tarmac. Usually I only walk that long when moving from terminal A to terminal B not in a single terminal airport. My experience at the arrivals was very quick as the 757 bus to Leeds city station was there for me. What I keep positive from the experience is the feeling of landing in a windy, natural, green environment which gives me an idea of what flying should have been many decades ago.

Flew in from Palma yesterday and the contrast between the two airports couldn't have been different. Leeds £1 charge for the trolley, £2 charge for driving through the car park, local traffic wardens waiting to pounce on anyone having the audacity to stop on the service roads, huge queue at passport control. Welcome to Britain! In short, Leeds Bradford is a grubby little money-making operation.

I use this airport between 6 and 12 times per year. It amazes me how quickly they can make it worse, but they seem to manage it every time I use it. The £2 fee for passengers being dropped off started the day I returned last week. The extra long queues at passport control, the longest yet. Around 25 minutes.

A small, over utilised airport with poor customer service and amenities - in the 6 months I've been unlucky enough to use it, it's getting worse. As pointed out - it's a long walk from any short stay through check in and security. This has recently been made worse. In the event someone wants to drop you off at the airport - they will now pay £2 for the pleasure (unless you use a distant car park). There's little space in the check in areas (except the separate Jet 2 portacabin), leading to mixed queues of passengers arriving at the airport, some waiting to check in and some waiting to go through security. There is one person handling security for 'standard' passengers - which is the majority of them. when I leave in the morning - it takes approximately 15 minutes to clear the passport check and another 10 to get through security. Jet 2 and others have scheduled flights which converge between 0730 and 1100 leading to a couple of thousand people (no exaggeration) attempting to get past one person. Of course, if you're willing to stump up another £3 you can 'fast track' - with another dedicated member of staff waiting to check your boarding pass. Airside, facilities are dire and over utilised. No choice but to wander through shop to move from security to the gates - carefully laid out to ensure it's impossible for more than a couple of people to pass through without bumping into each other. Awaiting you is insufficient seating and the usual dreadful airport chain cafes. Staff are surly on the whole and gate announcements are tardy and inaccurate. Looking to board at gate 9 for Southampton. That's fine - as long as you wait for an entire group heading for Belfast to board first. No co-ordination between ground crew and general lack of engagement. To summarise - unpleasant experience.

I used this airport again last week for the first time in a couple of years and found it better than recent reviews suggested. The weather was awful, and the car park was in a treacherous state but inside the terminal information about delays was good (announcements actually apologised for the 'inconvenience that will be caused' rather than the more usual mealy-mouthed 'may be caused'), staff were available, polite and cheerful and my BMI flight to BRU got away less than an hour late despite the need for de-icing.

In the past LBA had all the virtues of a small airport, for which the odd limitation was an acceptable trade-off. Now it's just another miserable big airport in miniature - all of the bad bits, with none of the good bits. As other posters have noted the drop-off experience is ghastly and the £1 baggage trolley charge is crass. The former long stay car parking has suddenly been chopped in two. They made the half that's nearest the terminal into short stay. This bit is naturally deserted, since LBA has almost zero business/short haul traffic. So you now walk miles across this empty car park before reaching the long stay somewhere near Horsforth. From here, your long walk uphill back to the terminal is compounded by all the old entry doors being permanently locked since they now placed the main entrance at the far end of the terminal. Once inside, of course they make you double back, since security is back in the direction you came from. A good work out for such a tiny airport. Baggage handling can be lame. On my inbound flight, when the bags emerged on the carousel they were from the wrong flight. Pax noted this, staff did nothing. So staff were alerted who immediately went on the defensive and refused to help, "we don't know any more than you do" etc. So we all stood and watched the same bags go round for maybe 20 minutes with no-one taking anything off. Because no bags were claimed, there was no room to load any more of the right bags. So they just kept going round and round. Staff refused to take them off, bizarrely insisting "please remove your bag so we can make more space". Hey, they're the wrong bags, we kept telling them. "Don't get shirty with me it's not our fault" etc. Meantime the other side of the curtain, 4 baggage handlers sat around doing nothing with full carts that they could not load - stalemate. Eventually enterprising pax started pulling off the wrong bags manually to make the odd bit of space. At which point ground staff suddenly decide to confuse everyone by announcing "if your bag has not arrived, please come and fill in a form". So now more mayhem as the pax try to ascertain, "did they not even load the bags at all?" Reply - "we don't know any more than you etc" Meantime the odd correct bag suddenly starts appearing, one at a time, in the gaps created by the enterprising pax. An hour later, eventually everyone got their bag, one by one. By the way, this was the only inbound flight in an otherwise deserted baggage hall. It really defies belief. Well done guys, you messed up the nice little airport that was LBA.

Leeds Bradford has a dreadful and distant approach for passengers - the barriers and drop-off arrangements are some of the worst in the world. It seems to have been assumed this is a centre of terrorist attack and the precautions are ludicrous ! IDH, airport of the capital of the western world actually allows drop-offs at the doors !

Excellent check in - literally two minutes. Food hall ok, although limited choice. Security was quick and departure hall was clean and not overly busy - although it can be very busy Friday/Saturday. Arrival was quick - there was a queue at immigration but all desks were open and we queued for no more than five minutes. The baggage reclaim area was a breeze and no queue for baggage. I used the short stay car park - whilst its fairly expensive it is in front of the terminal and very convenient.

Having moved to Germany and had to frequent LBA much more I am appalled at the security provisions ie length of wait and their attitude. I was going to ignore my last flight to Dusseldorf on 26th March with Jet 2 but it still remains with me. One screen in use, 3-4 personnel hanging around, passengers shouted at for their mobile ringing. Where does it say they have to be turned off? I tried to tell myself they were being so secure in their searches but the mobile phone I had lost was in my bag, they missed that even though I asked them to look for it. Overseas visitors were trying to jump the queue as they were frightened of missing their flight, everybody was hot, bothered and stressed and surrounded by noisy youths who were not told to switch off. My flight was delayed due to security, not that Jet 2 seemed bothered and the shop was empty because like me I had no time to do the shopping I wanted to do. I also had a bet with my husband which I lost, over being challenged about my plastic bag for toiletries, that was the first time they did not challenge what had always been acceptable in Stuttgart, Amsterdam and Dusseldorf?

Pre booking car parking - if you are taking two cars you need to use two separate visa/credit/debit cards unless you will be charged again and then £10.00 refund fee for your trouble is applicable. This is after receiving E mails to confirm both bookings and instructions. Its the first time I have prebooked this service but will use alternative in future.

I travel every couple of months from Düsseldorf to Leeds Bradford and am grateful for the connection. I agree that the facilities leave a lot to be desired. There are too few gates and there is not enough seating for people waiting. Thank goodness Jet2 has its own check-in area. The forecourt work is a disaster. While one appreciates the need to create stand-off in front of the terminal, it is made ridiculous by the fact that the extra short-term parking area is within lobbing distance of any old projectile over a wire netting fence to where the aircraft are parked. Good job I'm neither a terrorist nor a litter bug. Every time I drop someone off or get collected by kind relatives, the parking situation is worse and the distance for luggage heaving longer. Oh for adequate parking, a decent eaterie and more seating in the arrivals waiting area. The contrast between hand baggage checks at the respective ends of my journey (Düsseldorf and Leeds Bradford) is like day and night. In DUS, they are sensible, humane, polite, reasonable. At L/B, they are officious, unfriendly, aggressive, careless with people's property and sloppy in their personal manners. Either the equipment must be incredibly inefficient, or they recruit "Jobsworths" only. Hateful experience for most travellers.

This airport is a shambles and disgrace to West Yorkshire. When it is not fogbound, it is a traveller's nightmare with onerous walks with baggage from transport to airport (particularly if you rent a car) and chaotic check-in desks. The internal layout is very poorly planned, with many bottlenecks and crazy queues in corridors to access security and too few check-in desks. Very poor.

What a shambles of an airport. I'm finding it very difficult to think of anything positive to say about this place at all. In relation to it's position as the main airport for West Yorkshire, it is nothing short of an appalling. I can see there are plans to upgrade the facility that look as if they have started already. Maybe the best plan would have been to flatten it and start again. The final straw was them trying to board two flights from the same gate at the same time. My BMI flight to Heathrow was shown on the screen as boarding, but when you went to the gate they were still boarding a Jet2 flight to Amsterdam. Total chaos as London passengers were being asked to step aside and, eventually, blocked the gate completely while the final stragglers for the Amsterdam flight were still turning up. It's not as if either plane were docked as both sets of passengers had to walk out in the wind and rain over the apron to get to their planes. Surely a quick change of gate for either one of the flights would have worked better. Anyway, I digress, this airport is a shambles from start to finish.

What a shame that I have no alternative commuting from Düsseldorf. The parking facilities and the overall connectibility to the airport are a catastrophe. For a regional airport catering for the Leeds area and it's finance centre one would have expected far more. As I arrived there on 29th July, my pick up required 40 minutes alone to exit the car park. Landing after 930pm would also be catastrophic if one had to rely on public transport. First bus to Huddersfield leaves at 0540am the next day! I agree to the previous comments pertaining to cleanliness and the difficulties of immigration control. Going for immigration through a duty free shop which really is cluttered is nothing more than a gag.
