Frankfurt Airport Review

by web-administrator (December, 2015)


Pros: -
Cons: -


(Guest Review) I should avoid this airport like the plague. My girlfriend, a 50 year old Filipino teacher en route from Costa Rica via Bogota and Frankfurt to Thailand - in transit - was stripped searched and made to pee in front of security staff. It was a thoroughly unpleasant and traumatising experience and there was no apology, assistance or offer of help when it was discovered that she was totally innocent of carrying drugs. The manner of the security was reminiscent of the nazis! Furthermore when she arrived in Bangkok she discovered that her hold baggage had been tampered with and her suitcase damaged. No compensation was offered. The carrier was Lufthansa.

Frankfurt Airport Review

by web-administrator (April, 2016)


Pros: -
Cons: -


(Guest Review) The airport on Tuesday was far far too hot. People are walking long distances weighed down with coats and baggage. Everyone I saw was dripping with sweat and their clothes were wet with sweat. This was extremely debilitating and unhealthy. The high temperature was very unreasonable!

security abuse in Frankfurt airport

by web-administrator (May, 2016)


Pros: -
Cons: -


(Guest Review) I just want to say about the Frankfurt airport security abuse. They use very sensitive scanner that detect metals in your bras. This give the security a good reason to grab you for all body parts, stick fingers inside your bra and even between the legs. When I was asked the reason for that detailed search, the security told me that my sweater has metal strips (it was actually decorative metal thread and there was NO metal strips on my pants). It was disgusting and humiliating. It makes me wonder: how many bombs airport securities have found in the passengers vagina so far? Or was it just sadistic sexual pleasure for some female security??

'Explosives?!'

by web-administrator (April, 2016)


Pros: -
Cons: -


(Guest Review) So I was accused of having 'explosives' in my hand luggage today! I'm an underweight 110Ibs blonde European woman by the way (not that it matters or anything, just an FYI.') It just frustrated me because it took a half hour of my time for the guy to go through all of my personal belongings (including my underwear, tampons and a private video I made with my boyfriend on my iPad)', only for him to find out that I did not (surprise, surprise) have any 'explosives' in my carry on bags. Wme off the most is that he wasn't even apologetic about anything.. Just like, 'sorry ma'am, I just invaded your privacy because you may have bombed up the whole of Frankfurt.' Seriously? Did I just step into the Twikight Zone? Fix your stupid little 'explosive detecting' machines, assholes?!

nice clean, safe, quiet airport to spend the night in

by web-administrator (March, 2016)


Pros: -
Cons: -


(Guest Review by katya) SLEEP: I had a pretty good night in the landside Terminal 2 because I found that on the 2nd level (on the way to the Terminal 1 shuttle) there were soft seats without armrests. Ear plugs, a sleep mask and a coat for warmth helped. Around 4am or so the floor cleaner came by and only woke me up because he accidentally bumped my bag. There were only a few announcements too, very short ones. SAFETY: I felt very safe, there were other travelers around sleeping in various spots too, with plenty of airport personnel and security folks. No one bothered me at all. POWER: I couldn't find any outlets near seating areas, but in the hallways to the sides of where I slept there were some outlets near the floor that worked. FOOD: A couple coffee/sandwich shop-like places were still open at 11pm and many things open already by 6am. INFORMATION DESK: I needed to contact my airlines, but they weren't around that time of night, so the information desk called their 1-800 number and let me use their phone to fix my reservation. Very helpful! OTHER: I saw that on the top level in Terminal 2, where the McDonalds and other restaurants are, they were all closed late at night and had some cushioned benches, but they were also partitioned off to suggest they would rather people not sleep there. I had planned to spend the night in the Brussles airport but since that airport was closed I had to come here - I and was very pleased at what I found here, this is WAY better than Brussles, especially with food/snack choices.
