Pisa airport has good connections but is too small for its traffic and totally disorganised. If you are leaving from there do all your shopping/eating land-side as once through the security there is very little and even less in the way of seating accomodation. One lady last weekend was loudly bragging about the bottle of spirits she has got through security and just as loudly sharing with her friends. Another was soulfully relating how security had relieved her of several bottles of olive oil she had been bringing as presents. Patchy security service then. We were due to leave from Gate 22 but access was restricted until 30 mins before departure when we were allowed through to an upstairs lounge with no shops but loads of space and seats! Why didn't they just do this earlier and relieve the crush downstairs? As a final fling our departure was delayed 15 mins because it was raining - apparently the ground handling staff were taking longer to move things about!
