    Get ready to walk a lot! The metro drops you off pretty far from a lot of the check-in counters. Free wifi in the check-in area but once in the terminals no signal! Great and easy Term to figure out!

    No places to sit down, grab a bite or drink a coffee. It's the only place where you can get wireless Internet but it really does not look like an European Union airport...

    Is it just me or are the food options in this terminal extremely poor? The greasy chicken and patatas at the cafe at the far end was memorable for all the wrong reasons!

    The Oldest terminal of all 4. The Low ceiling makes you feel down. Each restroom has only a few stalls, some of them are out of service. No sofa, no chairs, only one cafe before security gates.
