| Grenoble Airport, a destination in it's own right. Now clear to see where "Come fly with me" and "Little Britain" get their characters from. Arrival was not so bad, only took ages to get through passport check with signs up saying France is on heightened vigilance. However, heightened vigilance should not translate to "lets only open 2 passport check points when 6 flights arrive within 10 minutes from each other". Departure though is a whole new level of torture and pain. The queue for check in snaked around the hall many times. In took precisely 1 hr and 27 minutes to get past the highly incompetent check in clerk. And that was only the first level of Dante's inferno. Between checking in our bags and going through security we had to scan our boarding pass 5 times! Twice with barely 4 shuffling steps between the scans. What is the point? Do I change appearance or identity whilst on the trot being watched by Airport security staff? Next comes the actual security check. The trays are the size of coffee cup saucers, so every punter needs about 10 trays for wallet/watch/phone/coat/belt/shoes/paperwork/earrings/cufflinks causing another massive queue just for fun. When eventually through, we ventured to the cafe. That was marvellous as well. Asking for cutlery (just a fork) with my salad baffled the employee. No forks to be found. Punching in our order in the till took another 15 minutes or so despite it being nothing but a couple of coffees, sandwiches and that before mentioned salad. What a joke. And as a final riddle to solve, toasties are handed out cold, it is a self service microwave to warm them up. Not signposted, not mentioned by the staff and hidden around the corner. Once microwaved it feels and tastes like eating a warm sock that has been worn skiing for a week. Delightful. Onwards to the actual gate, out through the door and held up outside as each individual group of cattle needs to be separated. For some reason it is the norm in Grenoble airport that the door you exit the departure hall from is as far away from your plane as possible. As no groups of cattle are allowed to intermingle, you are stopped many times during your walk of shame to allow others to board other random airplanes. how this process received thumbs up from France homeland security is a mystery. I guess as these confused groups are attempting to leave the country no one cares. Regardless, this is by far the most incompetent airport I have been to in a long time and that said by a frequent traveller through Manchester Airport (voted one of the worst largest airport in the world 3 consecutive years 2017/18/19).
