U.K. Airlines Do Well In Awards, U.K. Airports Not So Much

Posted September 30, 2008 by BookingBuddy

Manchesterairport Passengers usually save their complaints for the airlines, but what about the airports? After all, according to awards being given out by a magazine, airports in the U.K. have a lot to answer for.

U.K.-based airlines such as British Airways, Virgin and even Flybe managed to scoop up many of the top spots, which were voted for by readers of Conde Nast Traveller. However, the best any U.K. airport—Manchester's—managed was to come in 15th.

The report did not mention how many airports were surveyed in total, but number 15 is still a lot better than any of the other U.K. airports. So, a tiny little pat (more like a tap, actually) on the back for Manchester Airport execs.

However, perhaps U.K. airports would achieve higher scores if Conde Nast readers were voting on other areas. What about awards for longest check-in queues? Or most confusing route to gates? Or most overbearing security staff? Come on, Conde Nast readers, give U.K. airports a chance to win something—start asking the right questions!
