I don’t usually make personal gripes on Slugger, but I was possibly not the most unhappy person at the City Airport this morning. One guy queued from 4.45 until close to 6.30 for the BMI flight. He had a connecting flight to Portugal to catch at Heathrow. There were just three people processing two large planeloads of passengers due to take off within half an hour of each other. To be fair that is all City Airport have given them. It aslo didn’t help that the airport anouncer kept telling us that the gate was about to close, when a good dozen of us had not even booked in. Not sure who to blame, but in the meantime, my advice is to avoid those two BMI services on Saturday during summer holidays: if you can possibly help it.
