    If you 4 hours away by train, it is better to come to the airport a day early. Check in at nearby airport as you will have an ample time to get boarding pass and relax at the lounge before depart.

    Top top: Executive Lounges close at 20:00 and Le Meridien is pleasant and there are plug sockets near the comfy chairs! Perfect for iPhone users :)

    Small, but surprisingly served by many airlines all the way from New York (Newark), Europe and to the Persian Gulf (Dubai). Efficient security and staff. Take the train into town for less than £4.

    Can get through Check-in quickly. Spend a few hours in departure lounge. Cafes, bars, shops etc. Arrivals after getting case can get to taxi rank pretty quickly.

    The best way to get to the airport from downtown is to take Virgin trains (one stop, less than 10 mins) Otherwise, take the slower London Midland train which stops twice before getting to BHX.

    Dress in layers if in airport & NEC venue only. Always sweltering. #PretaManger has best value grub at departures. 7kilos hand luggage only if heading to Dublin via Aer Lingus. Easy on the brochures

    If you're planning to be picked up or dropped off, do so at Birmingham International Railway Station as there is a free, 2 min monorail to the airport and you skip the fees at BHX.

    How many cleaning staff does it take to clean up a spilled cup of cola? 5. One to warn the public, one to put out some stools as barriers, one to bring a mop, one to bring a bucket, and one supervisor

    Fancy yourself as a TV presenter? You must visit BBC Birmingham’s Public Space at The Mailbox and read and record a news item or a weather forecast.

    Easy to move around,spaced out and not crazy as Heathrow, the only thing is the fact that you cant find a flight from Birmingham to Istanbul frequently, only in the mornings:-(

    For short term parking, park at the Birmingham International train station and jump on the free tram across. It'll save you up to £7 for 30 minutes.

    If you're into flying on commercial airlines, this exclusive, hidden gem is popular with Birmingham locals who are "in-the-know".

    All Bar One by gates 1-20 is much quieter and nicer than the main departure lounge area.

    M&S food is perfect to grab a ready meal for when you get home or a tasty sandwich on your way out instead of an overpriced tasteless one from the airline!

    Nice airport - busy enough that there's stuff to do but not so busy that you're queuing for hours. Has direct rail links to Birmingham and London.

    Pick up a pay as you go SIM card once you reach your destination. That way, you'll be charged local rates to call or text local numbers and can use mobile internet without the roaming costs!

    It's a bit annoying you can't get your gate number till last minute, I much prefer to go, sit at the gate and zone out till boarding than watching the board for the last minute dash to the gate...

    If you're flight's between Gates 1-20, then you have my sympathies- there's literally nothing to do here, so stay back in the main terminal for as long as you can!

    As a distance leaner, it's great to be able to convert your work commute into valuable classroom time - bring your tablet along and learn on the go!

    If you're flying a FlyBe operated flight, pick FlyBe on the self checkin - even if you booked through Air France!

    Head to gates 1 - 20 for a much quieter rest area, away from the tourists! Wetherspoons will serve you breakfast in 5 minutes.

    If checking in large groups at self check in only put in 3 at a time or it crashes. A very slow and frustrating hour spent checking in.

    All the landside shops close early, bear this in mind if you're arriving in the evening.

    Took me over 20 minutes to get through security. Plan your trip with a lot of time to have that sorte so you won't have to run to your gate.

    If you're here in the early am, checkin agents only show up at 4am. If you wanna beat the queues get to the desks by 3.30am.

    If you want to park, try airparks £15 for 4 days and a bus to the airport takes 5min bargain if you ask me.
