Is this the worst airport in Europe? I don't know but it is certainly in the bottom one. A lot of criticism of the public sector or semi-state sector is unwarranted but the criticism of the DAA does not go far enough. Michael O'Leary is right on this one. The whole place is a disorganised mess. The appearance I get from them is that they are more interested in running a shopping mall rather than the core business of operating an airport.
The notion that the opening of Terminal 2 is the answer is naive. If anything, because of its location, it will exacerbate the situation. From the complete rip-off that is parking charges to the inadequate signage and miles and miles of corridors and stairs to negotiate to get to and from the planes.
