February 2014 - This airport is an abomination. As soon as you enter the terminal for departure, the entire place reeks of corruption. Officials ask for bribes openly and pounce on unsuspecting weak prey, i.e. passengers who are not accustomed to such a milieu. There are security checks after security checks after security checks, and then there are passport checks after passport checks after passport checks, followed by security checks. I arrived with my family more than three hours before departure and only reached the waiting lounge next to the gate 20 minutes before flying. The only saving grace was the heckler who came to me as I reached the lounge asking if I needed a cuppa. He brought me my hot beverage and asked me to cough up an exorbiant fee for that. Exhausted, I shelled out the greens and sighed in relief when the flight departed from the hell hole. Unpleasant staff, unclean bathrooms, terrible food choices, senseless security that does not really work because of the bribe issues and a general rudeness and unstructured layout of just about everything. Worst is that I have to go again next year. No no no!
