    A small and nice airport, you only need to turn up 30 min before the flight and security is fast! Try to avoid morning flights though as it's the busiest time

    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.

    Small. But as I overheard a pilot going through: "what I like about this airport is you always see the same people". Love the closeness to London city, my favourite London airport.

    Pilots restaurant is reasonably quick for lunch but a tad expensive. Try one of the coffee shops for sandwiches for take away.

    Bloomberg area has seats and chargers. They have the travelling worker in mind at this airport.

    The airport is weird by LDN standards.My flight gate was displayed incorrectly, with info "boarding closed" (imagine the stress!) and staff informed me "the priority boarding is not accepted here";-)

    It is crowded, dirty and claustrophobic. No business class lounge that one can escape to.

    Location is good. Super accessible by public transport. Free wifi. But an airport with no lounge and only two cafes to eat it in? #why

    Only the fact that you can go through security quickly is good about the airport. Dont come early expecting a BA lounge as it doesn't exist!

    Horrible airport, no airport lounges, not t enough seats for all to sit. Limited selection of food or drink options, only good if you get here 15min before your departure time.

    For a snack (sandwich, crisps) or drink (smoothie, soda, milk) head over to the Boots shop near gate 2. Quick, friendly and low cost.

    At the City cafe inside LCY. Always ask for the bacon to be grilled. ... otherwise you get this. On the whole relaxing environment.

    Small airport just outside the city center. Very convenient too reach. Helpful staff when you happen to run late. Watch out coming to the airport too late early in the morning, can be very busy.

    You don't have to arrive very early, this airport is tiny and you'll shoot through security.

    I just love the ease and speed of getting in and out of this airport. From landing to exit 15 min! And within 30-45 min by DLR in heart of London.

    I recommend the nice little lounge for the JFK all business service. Bubbles and cheese ahead of a comfortable journey to NYC via Shannon on the baby bus. ✈️

    "Gate closing" = we're about to start letting people in to the small / cramped area where you'll wait for the aircraft.

    I like traveling from this airport, no security queues and it doesn't take long to get to your gate.
