Bristol is predictable rude staff long queues lack of seating poor and expensive facilities with a long wait for bags to come off on return. All in all a poor airport. How do they get away with having such long closed corridors to and from the gate areas with no fire exits or marked escape route? In the so called new terminal it appears that there is not emergency lighting either. I am starting to think like other commentators below maybe its time to fly from LHR or BHX. Long haul connections at AMS or CDG are now getting so long due to flight cutbacks it adds almost half a day to all journeys.
