Worst airports EVER - which are yours?
Once you've travelled through a few airports, you come to recognise which can handle large volumes of passengers better than others. At New York's JFK for example, there's far more space and more (manned) customs desks in Terminal 4 (which the likes of Virgin and KLM usually fly into) than in Terminal 7 (British Airways).
Unfortunately, whether airports choose to do anything about the situation is another matter. With summer on the way, the queues will return; will airports increase staffing levels to ensure a smooth and relatively quick passage through them? Nope. Here's the scene at Gatwick last night, courtesy of avid Bitterwallet reader Amin:
The queues for passport control are out of control at Gatwick airport. I took this photo at around 7pm last night, and it took over half an hour to pass through immigration.
Over half an hour doesn't sound too terrible compared to some airports, but it's still not pleasant; usually a combination of poor design and low staffing can result in a long claustrophobic wait when all you really want to do is get home and stick Match of the Day on.
So over to you - as the Summer rush approaches, which airports are the worst at handling passengers leaving and returning home? Which terminal buildings fill you with dread at the mere thought of having to pass through them? And which are painless by comparison?
