A mess

by asiaflyer (January, 2014)


Reason for Stay: Checking in and had to wait
Where: Landside and Airside
Pros: None except that as a regular traveller some officials become more friendly
Cons: Dirty, rude staff, messy, bad signing, under par lounges and shops


This must be one of the worst airports. I had to fly here around 25 times till date and the entire trip you dread arriving at King Abdullaziz International Airport. It starts with immigration being a complete mess with what must be the most rude and arrogant undereducated immigration desk staff in the world. Waiting time can be anything from 1 hour to 4 hours. Luggage handling was reasonable unless some religious police man would start taking your luggage and going through every file on your laptop. If this happens prepare for a long wait. I always had a driver waiting for me as taking a taxi means being taken for a ride at dazzling speeds and dazzling costs. Departure was messy at first until the manager of Etihad Airlines started to recognize me as a regular passenger. From then on service at check in was fast, friendly and efficient. A continued >>

New Delhi Airport

)email submission from MRH) I believe you have missed out the awful conditions for transit passengers at New Delhi Airport. International pax who arrive late in the evening and have a next day flt, (say within 12 hours), will find that their airline counter is closed which means they are unable to get a boarding card. Without a boarding card - even if you've self-checked-in - security will not allow you to enter the departure lounge. So, if you don't want to pay a Visa fee of over US50 as well as taxi fares and hotel costs, you are have to spend the night in the Transit area. This consists of a bunch of very uncomfortable chairs with a coffee machine available. The airport claims that 'improvements' are in the works, but it has been this way since the airport opened. It is pretty bad.Many people come from Nepal etc and have to sit i continued >>

Avoid if you Can!

by andresouza (September, 2014)


Reason for Stay: Connection between flights
Where: Landside and Airside
Pros: Free and working wifi
Cons: The building is about to fall apart.


I had no choice but to transit in PAP, on my way to Dominican republic, I would not recommend to sleep at this airport, everything is chaotic, the staff more willing to get a bribe to help you do something 'quicker'! and they won't let you sleep as they will always show up with a 'interview for tourists'. As a brazilian myself, I was a bit happy brazilian army patrols the airport for the UN, so I had the chance to chat and kill homesickness a bit! Be aware the toilets are not cleaned often, and as they are re building the airport there's dust everywhere, a true end of the world experience.

STL Airport Review

by web-administrator (October, 2014)


Pros: -
Cons: -


(email submission) I had to spend the night in the St. Louis airport last month. There are some overstuffed chairs by Starbucks in the A gate. They were pretty comfy. And the side tables lined up great so I could stretch out my legs. Also by A2, there are some benches behind a wall that you can stretch out on.

comfortable night

by marcorox (October, 2014)


Reason for Stay: Early flight departure
Where: Landside
Pros: very comfy seats, security, nobody bothered, plugs, wi-fi
Cons: expensive food/drinks


I had a very comfortable night at Naples Capodichino airport. No problem at all. Open 24h, safe, armless cushioned seats, not too many people around, plugs, 2h free wi-fi, clean toilets... let's say I have stayed in worse hostels...
