| Got to be the worst airport I have ever experienced and I have been through quite a few. As others say, there were queues everywhere. There was a 1 hour queue at the check in desk for EasyJet where all the flights had to get into a single queue, which, by the time we had checked in must've been 400 yards long or more, with a 2 hour wait. Then we went to security which was thorough, probably too thorough as we had to remove keys and spectacles from our hand luggage but not the watches from our wrists? But then we went to duty free and I wrongly thought it was over but no, we then saw another long queue by the shops which was apparently for passport control where a police officer simply looked at my passport as they did when I entered, no stamp and no note of my departure from France. Then I thought we could relax except that all the good shops and restaurants were behind us in the area we had just left. The next stage was to find the boarding gate but we are are now in a much smaller area where there was a coffee lounge but only a small toilet area with just 2 urinals for the men. Pathetic! After another 30 mins we looked at the departures board, (no announcements) to see we were boarding at gate B31. We joined yet another queue only to find people returning from it saying the gate had been changed to 21 (no announcement) so we headed there. We had trouble finding it due to poor signage but when we did find it, we couldn't go in as others were coming out and it was just a mass of people all trying to squeeze past each other. When we got to the gate and had our boarding passes inspected we went down the ramp to the plane but after only a few people had boarded, we were stopped and told that another plane had to disembark before we could get onto ours. The glass door to the gate was closed and we had to wait another 15 mins while they got the passengers off the other plane but then they couldn't open the door due to an electronic problem presumably not allowing 2 doors to remain open at the same time. We finally boarded the plane 1 hour late and the crew wondered where we had been! All in all if we hadn't laughed we would have cried, it was a truly awful experience and one I dont wish to repeat. And this is a modern airport? Its not fit for purpose as it stands Oh and the Wifi connects but simply says no internet.
