What can I say about Miami airport other than what a complete nightmare! It starts as soon as you hit the tarmac get off the plane and discover a mass of people all trying to get through immigration. Immigration itself took me around an hour which wasnt as bad as the 2 hours last time I visited. They make you stand - even the elderly and then interrogate you like a criminal taking finger prints and photos. Then you get through to the baggage lounge where your bags have been dumped in the middle of the room as there isnt enough room on the belt! It then takes you another 15minutes of pushing and being pushed to get out of the ridiculously small baggage claims area. By the time this happened it was dark and I had to then stand outside trying to flag down my hotels complimentary shuttle bus. On my return back to the UK I arrived at the airport very early and waited patiently as the bag drop desk for Virgin Atlantic opened. Once it did I checked in and was then told to take my bags with me to a special designated bag scanning area. Took my bags there but the machine was broken and the a lot of bags were being piled up (not exactly a safe and secure method if you ask me). Anybody could have walked off with the bags! Anyhow they eventually sorted it out and were taking bags somewhere else for us (or should I say one guy was). the departure gate area F is dark and in need of brightening up. The toilets were disgusting. The shops are appalling and the only food options is junk food. Out of all the airports in the world this has to be the worst I've visited.
