Having just visited T4 at JFK, give me a bland T2 at MAN any day. Complete shambles.

On the return to MAN T1, I was off the plane, straight through passport control, grabbed my bag and took a taxi home. Less than an hour from wheels down. And you know what, I didn't stop to think what might have been if Sir Norman Foster had been involved in the design.

People want a functional airport.
