Arrived on 27/9. Queues for everything. Delays not too long however. At passport control the official never looked at me, his head resting on one hand he waved me off dismissively with the back of the other. No check on passport. Departing was a whole different scenario. Arriving at the airport we found approx. 6 queues outside on the pavements. We were instructed by a holiday rep., to join one. After 30 mins., waiting in the sun we were directed into the check in area. I could then see why we were left outside. There was no way the hall could have held all the people waiting outside. Another queue of 20 minutes to check in. We were then directed to security, not difficult to find, it was right behind us and stretched for 30 yards ahead, approx., 10 people wide. We were constantly told by staff to 'Move up, move up' There was no place to go. The same staff constantly came into the queue shouting 'Make way, make way' as they led people with mobility issues or with small children through the queue to the front. Eventually we reached the front after 25 minutes of shuffling forward, herded together like animals. Staff were asking to look at boarding cards and passports before passing through the screening process. I offered mine, the staff member looked away, and I received the same backhand wave as I had at Immigration on the way in to the Country. I was motioned forward to go through the scan. Someone shouted at me from the adjacent scanning position, took my passport and boarding card, threw it into one of their plastic tubs and placed it on their conveyor. I now had my belongings going through two separate scanners. Into the departure area, utter bedlam. Totally overcrowded, No seats. Not at all easy to get information from screens. Once again queues for absolutely everything. Stood for 90 minutes before being called to board. Luckily? Our flight was delayed by just over an hour. Otherwise I am sure it would have left without us. As we were boarding I overheard someone say that they had found seating on an upper level. No signs anywhere to say so. Toilets were indicated by an arrow a scrap of paper (one only) stuck to a pillar. An absolute nightmare!
