Luton airport has the feel of an airport for cut-price airlines. Since it's so far out of the city and doesn't have a large volume of passengers trains are not very frequent and not fast (compared with LHR for example). The bus to the airport was also late going whenever they can wait till they get a full bus. The airport is strict with the 1 bag policy (meaning laptop bag counts as a bag as does a handbag I'm told). All other airports I've been to are more lenient on this policy. On the plus side security was quite brisk; they had a lot of people to process but had many scanner gates open and people were moving fast. Airside there are some food and goods shops to keep you busy before the flight. I will still avoid flying this airport unless I have plenty of time to throw away and money is tight.
