    if your train ticket destination is Luton Airport the shuttle bus is included. If it says Luton airport Parkway it is not included (£2 cash each way)

    Doesn't accept Oyster cards. Also the bus transfer to the airport is now £1.50 unless your train ticket is to Luton Airport (as opposed to just Parkway station).

    Newsagent on the first floor sells snacks during normal working hours but you have to rely on vending machines at other times

    All trains stopping in platform 1 go to London (all of them stop in St. Pancras but not all in the rest of London stations)

    Buy your tickets train in advance and don't think Oyster card work despite signal. They shouldn't call this London airport, it's not a good thing for London!

    If you go to St Pancras, check which train is faster. Its better wait 10 mins and board fast train than go on slow one

    If you're traveling from here in London, check you've bought the correct ticket - cheaper to buy anytime return, and add a day travel card than getting one all in.

    A surprisingly cumbersome place to get around if you have luggage. Which you would do if you are travelling to or from the airport

    A straightforward 10/15 minute walk into Luton town centre if you've missed your train to Luton

    If you buy your train ticket to Luton Airport then it covers the bus fare (£1.50 single/£2.50 return)

    Station staff couldn't be bothered helping you - best to be self sufficient and plan ahead with tickets and schedules.

    Do not use your ticket to get out of the station. Jump over or sth. The ticket gets you on the shuttle. Or you have to pay £2. Cash only.

    When going to the airport take the stairs & beat everyone on the escalators to the bus.

    Not sure if this is normal because I just moved in but service is horrible. Trains are constantly changing platforms and times. Not very convenient to run with suitcases lol.

    They have a very strict schedule and wait for no one. This includes closing the door on passengers and their belongings. Beware!

    Don't be fooled, just because it says 'airport' in the station name, doesn't mean it's anywhere near the airport. Go figure.

    If you are coming from the airport get your ticket from Luton ticket desk in order to avoid queues at station

    NEVER take the train if you're traveling at night! Use bus services! You wait an hour for the train and just 5 minutes before estimated arrival time they cancel it! Shitty service for a shitty airport

    Always have £1.50 for the bus as most train tickets you buy are only to Luton Parkway. not valid to the airport such a con. Even ticket staff at manned stations can't do a ticket to the airport.

    Not great when signal problems mean your train is terminated at this god forsaken station on way to London.

    No perder el ticket del tren, pues lo pedirán dos veces para subir al bus que lleva a la terminal. El trayecto es corto, de apenas 5-6 minutos.
