Queuing at Palma airport.


Another year, same old story. British passengers flying out of Palma airport are again having to endure long queues at passport control and at boarding gates. Terminal A, or ‘terminal Brit’, appears to be facing the same issues as last year, despite assurances by the airport authority Aena that the problems would have been resolved in time for this summer.

Following a social media complaint from one traveller, Aena responded: "Hi Anna. We are sorry for the experience. We will forward your comment to the airport, we work with Spanish Police @policia to speed up the wait time. Best regards." @Aena.

The visiting tourists are responsible, directly or indirectly, for around 70% of this island's wealth. Why would anyone treat a treasured guest with contempt?

Get used to it. It will be worse with Brexit.

When I was young my mother always told me "sticks and stones may break your bones but names will never hurt you". Everybody knows this you would think. I find it incredible these days that grown men can get upset by name calling. Grow a pair for goodness sake.

If you want a real queue, try Orlando. Or Miami. Or LAX. Palma is moderately efficient!

S,you need to crawl back under your stone and take your racist and derogatory language with you.

Why do you allow S to continue to use racist and derogatory language in respect of the French.? Do you not monitor these comments.?

I must admit the airport arrangements are one of the reasons I holiday elsewhere nowadays. Irrespective of who is to blame it really does take the shine of any holiday. I went to Nerja in March and will be going to Siena Italy in July. Two holidays that I would normally have visited Soller and Pollenca. So I'm doing my bit to lower the saturation of the island. I can recommend Nerja. Lovely place and not a sign of anti tourism anywhere !

What a complete diisgrace the Airport has become. Palma Handling and The Security Operation. Perhaps more problems will surface whe the Frogs and Spanish Controllers go on Strike. Great Holiday times---NOT.
