| This is the third time we have flown into and out of Grenoble this winter season. On each occasion the journeys have been continually hit be delays. The queue to enter and pass through passport control can extend outside of the covered zone, even this area is cold and inhospitable. The return flight experience is far worse, the queues for check in are chaotic, particularly if you need to use 'check in' desks 18 - 21, it is almost impossible to access them directly as queues for other desks block the route. If taking skis there is yet another queue for over sized baggage. Today we even had to queue to enter the queue for security! The line for this queue weaves round a network of barriers. When you finally exit the security check you face yet another queue for Passport Control. On joining this the 'last call' for our flight was announced! Fortunately dozens other suffering passengers happily waved us through so we did not miss it. Clearly the airport cannot efficiently service the number of flights it has at the weekends. This is true in peak and off peak weeks. I do not recall such a terrible experience when flying to and from Grenoble some years ago. If the flights could be 'staggered' rather than multiple departures all within less than an hour I am sure the situation could be improved. i will do my upmost to avoid using this airport in future, perhaps 'carriers should also consider this action. Jet 2, easyJet, BA and Aer Lingus (there may be others too) all currently use it and seem to manage to time their departures to almost coincide with each other. In my ratings I have recorded NA for terminal seating, food and beverage and airport shopping simply because I have never had time use use any of them.
