| This Airport is not fit for purpose I am afraid. Apart from being located on the top of a hill with little hope for expansion and extremely poor transport links it has been steadily heading downhill for the last few years. I have used LBA frequently over many years and quite frankly it is just getting a more and more dreaded experience. The parking situation at the airport for anyone wanting to pick up/drop off relatives has been set up to milk money out of those people, with surrounding areas being made prohibitive to do so with the use of parking restrictions and cameras in order to force people down the paying route. That is a minor issue however in comparison with the facilities and the absolutely awful attitude towards and treatment of travellers by the airport security staff. It is much more akin to being corralled into a prison camp than the start of a happy holiday. It is just an ordeal to be endured I am afraid. On my latest trip to Gerona one or two of the security staff grossly overstepped the mark with the way they spoke to myself and other passengers, rude, aggressive and offensive. Once through to the departure lounges you are faced with areas which are simply just not big enough for the number of people using them. It is a struggle to find anywhere to sit, refreshment queues were a mile long, families forced to sit on the floor, Absolutely dreadful. On to the Departure gates which were fundamentally portakabins totally unsuited to the number of people trying to use them and just not big enough. All in all the Leeds Bradford Airport experience has become a real ordeal. I am very proud of my City and this airport is an embarrassment to it, someone needs to have a rethink and consider creating an international airport elsewhere which will more accurately reflect what the area requires both now and in the future, with good transport links and facilities which are fit for purpose, adequate and not crumbling and decaying.
