I'm beginning to think that most of this is all down to airports. I tend to use LPL, MAN, BRS and SXF. Are these notably worse?

I chatted to crews after allocated seating was introduced and they...

Do I really have to spell this out?

Because, pamann, what was a seat fight has now become a cabin baggage fight. Anything to make passengers move fast and keep the turnrounds short.

Not just an easyJet thing, I would totally agree.

However, easyJet is the airline most likely to get a grip and change things for the better.

Carpark height barriers

A bit boring, sorry, but would someone who knows the airport please tell me if any of the longterm carparks have height barriers? I need to park my high van for a week or two.

Thank you very much!

Millerscourt, I think that you are absolutely correct but it's probably more complicated than that - and I suggest that we leave it at that. We do miss her though.
