    Luton Airport worst experience.

             

    26.10.2017

    Pros: None

    Cons: Far, unfriendly staff, no smoking zone, no sleeping or resting area. Only lounge is 25£ and should be book 24h prior, which doesn’t make sense as if you really need the lounge means that you actually are spending much time at the airport and therefore that it was not expected.

    Have been in over 30 countries and 40 different airports . Definitely the worst. Shameful coming from a “developed” country.

    Pocos asientos y ruidoso

             

    10.08.2017

    (Review by Isabeles) Llegamos a las 2,30 de la madrugada asi que nos quedamos a dormir en el aeropuerto. En este aeropuerto apenas hay asientos, casi que solo hay en la zona de llegada. Tuvimos suerte porque pillamos dos sillones en la cafeteria y ahí fue donde dormimos, aunque con el sonido de la maquina de café toda la noche! ( hubiera sido bueni llevar tapones). Observamos que la gente hacia así: pides un café y ya te quedas a dormir. Los empleados no te echan. Eso si, son pocos sillones, dificil pillar.uno, tuvimos suerte. Y con enchufe para cargar el movil justo detrás! Tambien hay enchufes por el pasillo en la zona de llegadas pero tendrás que sentarte en el suelo mientras cargas. Si necesitas comer/beber hay una tienda Marks&Spencer simply food con bastamte variedad y precios asequibles. Si necesitas cambiar euros a libras para pagar ellos mismos te pueden cambiar. Tambien hay cajeros en la zona de llegada. Para fumar puedes salir al aire libre. Las zonas de llegada y salida mo estan comunicadas por el interior, tienes que salir fuera y caminar unos 200 metros para entrar a la zona de salidas. En esta parte hay mucha gente sentada por el suelo porque mo hay asientos. Si vas en.un vuelo de easyjet ve con tiempo a la pueeta de embarque porque son casi 15 minutos andando para llegar ya que parece que a easyjet le asignan las ultimas puertas, la 1 en nuestro caso, que es la última del pasillo. En cuanto a buses para Londres los hay toda la noche. Aunque compres el billete en Easybus al final vas em um.bus de National Express. Sacate el billete por imternet con antelación y llevalo impreso. Ojo que el precio varia segun la hora, con diferencias considerables de precio. En Londres puedes bajarte en Baker Street, en Marble Arch o en Victoria Station. Si necesitais cambiar euros a libras las oficinas de cambio mas económicas estan cerca de Victoria Station y tambien al principio de Oxford Street. Suerte y a disfrutar de tu viaje! No olvides comprar una Oyster Card para viajar en metro y en bus porque billetes simples son carísimos ( te vale para las dos cosas, y en bus puedes hacer un transbordo dentro de la primera hora). Nosotros la compramos en Victoria Coach Station, al lado de la consigna de equipajes (que por cierto es el sitio mas barato de Londres si necesitas dejar tu maleta unas horas). Nosotros recargamos 20£ y con eso tuvimos para 5 dias en Londres, aunque solo haciamos dos trayectos al dia, algun dia 3, y nos dio justo justo. Las 5 £ de compra de la oyster las puedes recuperar al irte en las maquinas automaticas de cualquier estacion de metro.

    Not as bad as anticipated

             

    01.07.2016

    Pros: 4 hours free wi-fi. charging boxes for devices. clean.

    Cons: cold floor. lack of outlets.

    (Review by smadds) I thought staying landside would be miserable, and it was not. There are lots of seats and booths to sleep in in the land-side coffee shop. BUT you have to get there early. I arrived at midnight and was WAY too late to get a nice spot, but i did get some normal chairs and a table to pass out on. The floor was a bit too cold for me, but would have been fine if I had had more layers to use. It's a bit noisy, but not unreasonable. Lots of people were staying overnight. Other reviews mentioned a large homeless population using the land-side, but I did not notice that at all. There was no trouble with security. Cleaners moved around sleepers without bothering them. Once airside, it looked like there were more seating (and therefore) sleeping spaces, but not many benches or places to really stretch out. Airside is where I saw the charging boxes. OVERALL: not the worst night in an airport at all. Pretty darn good, actually. 4 hours of free wifi is nice. There are not many free outlets, but there are charging boxes airside, which allow you to lock up your device and charge for 30 minutes for free. It was very clean both land- and airside. Very relaxed and not stressful. Would sleep over again if needed, but I would arrive earlier to sleep in the coffeeshop. Or early enough to sleep airside.

    AVOID AVOID IF POSSIBLE

    (Review by jchatboard) LUTON AIRPORT – This airport must be the pits of pits? Whoever were involved with its development must have either been alcoholics or on ‘pot’! As without a doubt this airport has stopped putting their passengers first, and instead put their own greedy business interests first. The majority of access to this atrocity of an airport means a slog all the way to the airport on either public transport, or drop off so far away from the terminals thus trying to keep several large suitcases under control. Or paying an atrocious amount of money for a few minutes ‘drop off’ near the terminal. IMHO Disgusting!!! I am rather amazed they still offer ‘FREE’ toilet facilities inside the terminal, but that might change in the near future??? If an alternative flight arrangement/departure/arrival point is available I would recommend take it to anyone considering traveling through this nightmare airport.

    Awfull…

             

    20.01.2016

    (Review by Max) Probably the worst airport in the UK. I know there's a lot of construction going on so things mighr change but at the moment it is really bad. The Eastern-European budget travellers make it a very unpleasent experience. I had someone throw up at night in front of my feet. There is trash everywhere and creepy looking people make you want to keep your eyes open. I recommend Arrivals to stay overnight. A lot less full and cleaner. Amd if you're lucky and it works you can use unlimited Costa Wifi. Food at the airport is OK. Long walking distances. And having to take a bus to the airport is annoying. Further Luton Airport Parkway station doesn't even serve that many connections so I had to switch another time at Luton.
