“I checked my luggage in on 13th June before departing for two weeks in Rome, Italy and my bag went missing. I have tried to get this resolved and not one company, the airline, the airport or Menzies Group have responded to my requests for information and more importantly the return of my baggage.”
“Flight was delayed at 20:15 by 5 hours, therefore had to stay in the airport through the night. At no point was any assistance or information offered by airport staff. We were unaware that we could get vouchers for something to eat and drink so had a very expensive and uncomfortable night. I believe that you could improve your services by having staff on hand for delayed flights to inform passenger of their rights and announcing where to find them over the tanoy system. Or even put up the recommended passenger rights posters in key areas.”
“I am a frequent traveller and feel that Edinburgh is one of the poorest looking airports that I have been in. It has not kept up with the times. The staff are friendly and helpful but the airport requires investment-big time. My husband and I arrived back from New York yesterday (an all night flight) and our whole planeload of people were held in a corridor until another load of people got on to their flight . It was bizarre. People were tired and sleepy and could not believe that they were being held up because the airport had not the basic facilities. The staff were great, apologised and did their best but this is not a good look for a capital city airport..”
“On June 14th, my husband and I were due to travel to Venice on flight no.EZY3386. Departure was scheduled for 14.25.
We were informed of a delay due to technical problems with the aircraft, after a further notice of a delay and a voucher for £3, we were eventually called to a gate. After being taken to the aircraft by bus, we were left standing, with no information whatsoever from any of the airport staff. We were then taken back to the airport, again with no information given from any of the ground staff. Eventually, after some of the passengers demanded an explanation, two of the staff mentioned there was a problem with paperwork. I do feel we could have been kept informed of the reasons why we were hearded around with no communication at all. This has been a very disappointing start to a long awaited holiday.”
“It was small enough to manage relatively easily. But there could be better signs directing people to the buses and tram leading to city center. I found the doors to the bus stops more or less by accident after we had already passed by them.”
“Queues at the security have improved but passport control, if there is more than one flight going through, is still slow. To offer a fast track for money is just 'money grabbing' and not a solution. There seems to be constant work going on at the Airport with little sign of any improvement in the amenities. Is there a 'grand plan' because it is not apparent.”
“It is a very handy airport for people living in the capital. An increasing number of airlines use it. Of course, this means it struggles at peak times and even the road system appears to be inadequate for the sheer number of vehicles nowadays”
“We had problems with a specific airline, our flight was cancelled, to get it resolved we had to go back to the desks at check in, and then go through security again. It was a very stressful experience.”
The airport is very nice, bright and easy to travel. The only point I did not like is the Gate 1 - 1E - 1F - 1K embarkation area, the area is very small, and the boarding passes are not well-defined, so the area was chaotic and unclear. People were a little scared, not knowing well what the right line was.
