    What modern airport only gives 30 min of free WiFi? Come on Barcelona! You have free WiFi in the city but not the airport?

    depending on which part of the airport your flight is going from you either have loads of ships and restaurants to choose from or 3 to choose from. Nightmare if your flights delayed.

    Aerobus is the best way to get to city center. Costs about 8 euros

    You can catch some rays when you have a flight delay, look for the outdoor area/terrace.

    The shops are not duty free, and you have to do your last minute shopping BEFORE you finish passport control.

    Be careful if you're flying with EasyJet - you arrive at Terminal 2B but leave from 2C!

    30% of passengers at T2 and 70% of passengers at T1. Terminal 2 is more charming and human size!

    Daniel:I work at BCN Airport. It is a non smoking airport, there are no rooms for smokers and no garden in A building.I think you mean the outside garden of Terminal 1, where you can smoke.;-)

    If you are flying with a smaller, European airline like Ryanair, make sure you print your boarding passes before (they charge). Also get there early because airport is huge.

    You better hurry up and arrive at least a couple of hours before your flight. They sometimes love to create a disastrous clusterfuck at the airport, so it may save you from being late for your plane!

    Here is a real tip: avoid vueling. Never trust their schedule. Their usual procedure : wait until boarding time to announce delays and never announce a long delay once: always announce 30min a time

    Smile and show a little skin to the immigration officer to get through without problems with the cheese and all the forbidden things inside your luggage. :)

    If going for tax-free the customs stamp is actually before passport control and the refund booth is after. You can't get the refund sans stamp so make sure to get it or repeat passport control!

    If you want to shop or go to the food court do it BEFORE going through security or your gate. Once you're in you can't get out.

    Really poor food/beverage/shopping selection at T2. Definitely not on par with other main European hubs (leagues of difference vs e.g. CPH)

    It's a mall that happens to have some air traffic going through it, not that that's a bad thing, enjoy the walks to and from the gates!
