Just seeing what airport(s) people nominate as their favourite and why.
BIRMINGHAM, UK. - IT IS SMALLER, LESS HASSLE (Less passengers) quick to depart and arrive in and less of a terrorist threat than other major airports. Quite the BEST way to enter the UK - GerriHardieBoys said:Just seeing what airport(s) people nominate as their favourite and why.
If you mentioned HK I reckon the Old Aiport in Kowloon City was great as well, mainly of the location and the way the planes landed.....drove pasted it 1 month ago...only a golfing range.Rossmurdoch said:HKG for its effieciency, cleanliness and ease of transport, the CX lounges are very good too.
JFK & CDG just because I love New York & Paris
Sounds much like KBP (Kiev Borispol). Their squats are not for the feint hearted - or for those that travel sans-paper :shock: .sully said:For the worst one, Sheremetyvo 2 in Moscow takes the cake. Oh, the toilets :shock:
Sorry for the delay in responding. I lost track of this thread. I have been to KBP three times, in 1999, 2002 and 2003. Last visit was July 2003.sully said:NM, a fellow visitor to KBP!! When were you there as I don't have too many bad memories of that aspect of the airport?
The airline should not have let him board if he did not have a Visa. One one of my flights from KBP, there was an English woman who had been refused entry and was turned around on the same flight. She had the standard 3 month visa (same as I used), but didn't realise it was a single entry visa and was trying to re-enter Ukraine within three months of her initial visit on that visa.sully said:I agree that the welcoming committee at passport control is not one that makes one feel at home. In fact I do remember one poor Canadian kid who decided to 'visit' some of his relatives on a whim (there are many Canadians of Ukrainian background inview of the former's generous immigration policies after WWII). He arrived sans invitation and visa, which he thought he could get upon arrival. As he didn't know exactly where they lived (they were waiting for him on landside) he was refused a visa and told to go back on the flight he had arrived on. He was not even allowed to speak with them to let them know what was going on :evil:
