They make almost continuous "This is a very special announcement for guest XXXX ... " calls that come so frequently and with such appalling sound quality that nobody ever seems to heed them - python

"My connecting flight was not till morning. I did not want to pay for a hotel which would cost me 26 round trip on the awful skybus to get to!
Domestic and International are connected and don't close at night. I walked around to scope out the best place to rest. A lot of people sleep on the ground up around the domestic check in. Astonishly some people sleep around the international check in which doesn't shut down and has loud frequent announcements and nothing but awful metal benches.
To get to the best place landside, go down the escalator just past the virgin domestic check-in. On the immediate left is a krispykreme with a long booth couch running down the wall. Easily accomodating 3 people. It is a bit noisy being next to the escalator with the wheels rolling across the metal grid, but announcements are quiet and muffled here. After flights finish it gets quieter at around 12am. Cleaners vacuum that area at 4am."
The last review for this airport was in 2012. Have you been there recently? Tell us about it!
It really warms my heart and makes me happy when I visit an airport's web site and it says on its facilities page "Whether you're planning a night at the Airport before your flight...." In other words, you are welcome to sleep in our airport. Thumb's Up Melbourne!!!
