    Incredibly strategically placed airport. Walking distance to ExCeL. Limited flight capacity and short runway. Still worth it.

    Enough shops to entertain yourself whilst waiting for your flight. The security is a bit too much though. A bodyscan should be enough, don't have to touch people in their panties too.

    Small and efficient airport. Connect with DLR and jubilee line to central London. Free wifi and you don't have to walk far within the airport.

    the best thing about this airport is the proximity to the city. ALWAYS choose this over the other london airports when possible to save on transfer time.

    Terrible "ultimate English breakfast", it cost about £17, not worth it. The yogurt sundae was ok, but still not worth to spend £8 for it.What a waste of money, I should have stick with Pret A Manger.

    Bit of a nightmare at the moment while the departure lounge is being upgraded. Too many people in too small a space. Once finished though should go back to being a great option for central London.
