FCO Jul 30th 2014 Review

by web-administrator (June, 2014)


Pros: -
Cons: -


(email submission from Ramy) I am writing about my review of Fumicino airport on the 30th of July 2014. This is my 3rd time to spend a hefty layover at FCO and by far the best time. There has been great improvements done to the airport since 2012. Firstly, there is unlimited free WiFi now with very good coverage. Secondly, they have constructed charging stations that are scattered everywhere with ready out of the wall wires, so you only need to plug your phone! Thirdly, in each area of the airport there is a cafe that's open 24 hours. Lastly, there is a. spot at the G gates that has 5 bed like chairs for sleeping, real comfy for sleeping!

New Terminal 2

by nurinae (July, 2014)


Reason for Stay: Other
Where: Landside
Pros: few long benches
Cons: no shower room and aggressive driver


Actually I'd planned to stay at hotel in the airport, coz have been arranged transportation early in the morning to go to my home town.but then I found out that I was landed in the new terminal and the hotel is in the other terminal. Its funny that I need to take taxi just to reach the hotel so I decide to look for prayer room and lay down. Most of the prayer rom already been occupied by some people so I move to benches at front of the gate. Bit annoying when some driver asking where do you wanna go etc and bitten by mosquitoes. But if I must say its awaaay better than the old terminal or else than CGK airport. Just hope the new terminal will connect with the other one so I can reach the nearest hotel without have to getting out or pay extra for transportation.

Fine night at YYJ

by Conway (July, 2014)


Reason for Stay: Too cheap for a hotel room
Where: Landside
Pros: Comfortable chairs, mostly quiet area
Cons: Main benches seeating area has very noisy lighting


Note that if you come to the airport late by bus, you will need to make a 20 minute walk from the nearest bus route. There are cows in a field along the way which will be interested to meet you. A previous review said you could sleep in the observation area. I called the security phone number and they said that if I arrived before 12:30am, then I could sleep in the airport. On arrival, a guard said I could sleep on some chairs and loveseats by the Starbucks but not in the upper observation area. That turned out to be quite comfortable and quiet. I took some cushions and put them on the floor to make a makeshift mattress. No one seemed to take issue with this.

Guangzhou airport

Pros: -
Cons: -


(email submission from Deanne) I was at Guangzhou Airport on 18 June 2014. I came in on a China Southern plane from Amsterdam arriving at 6.50am and departing at 2.30pm for Auckland, New Zealand. So 7 hours transit during the day time. My bags were checked all the way through and so I just had to go through passport control then went upstairs to the departures area in the same terminal. I think it is a separate International Terminal, certainly doesnt look new and shiny like the photos Ive seen, perhaps thats the domestic terminal. There was no security check getting back onto the next plane. This area was long with perhaps 8 gates max. It had about 6-8 shops and 2-3 eating places from memory. We were really tired from the flight, so another traveller and I tried to sleep. You can find seats and areas behind the shops and restaur continued >>

Woken up but found good spot later.

by leandro0341 (July, 2014)


Reason for Stay: Early flight departure
Where: Landside and Airside
Pros: Good nook on landside
Cons: NO ONE is allowed in secured area after 2am


I had a 9-hour overnight layover in Fresno. Knowing this ahead of time, I did pack a sleeping mat, blanket, earplugs and a travel pillow. At first, I camped out near gate 5 and 7 but was woken up at 2am by Fresno police informing me that I must leave the secured area and sleep in the unsecured area. I've slept in other airports and this has never happened before. Fortunately, in the unsecured area, down the hall a bit from Ticketing and directly across from the baggage cart machine and bathroom/barber there is a small nook where I slept without trouble. There were even plug outlets. The earplugs were good to have because the airport runs announcements all night.
