Dreadful experience. Made my disabled daughter stand queuing for an 1 hour for security. No provision for disabled people. Staff rude. Toilets disgusting with overflowing nappy bins.

A horrible experience from a so-called international airport. Parking staff are very rude. They do not speak English and are clearly annoyed when one does not speak German. I Pre-Paid for the parking and received a confirmation, only to have to pay it again upon my return because ticket stub was corrupted. Instructions at gate only in German. No one responding to help button at the exit bar. Had to back-up and create a traffic jam. No parking attendant on duty and when they did show up (it was only 6pm on a weekday), did not speak English and did not care to check that my reservation was pre-paid and issue me a new ticket. Was basically told in sign language to either pay again or just be stuck there in a very rude manner. Written a mail asking for a refund and attaching all the documentation details only to receive an automated response mail a week later informing me that they are still working on the issue. All this during a very slow Covid-19 travel period with obviously very light traffic. Can you imagine when it traffic goes back to normal. Not only are they totally clueless about customer experience but so are their automated email bots...Avoid at all costs unless you have no other option.

A very bad experience here for my wife and I from the most obnoxious man that we have ever met.

We departed from gate C and consider ourselves to be frequent flyers, but we don’t speak German.

At security we took out liquids as usual but it would seem that we placed them in the wrong type of tray. Instead of explaining the security man was very rude to my wife and I. At one point he was shouting at my wife “ PUT IT BACK, PUT IT BACK”, she politely explained that she was unsure what she was doing wrong and his reply was “25 MILLION CUSTOMERS A YEAR ALL KNOW WHAT TO DO APART FROM YOU TWO”..

Clearly no need to be rude and I doubt we would have been as polite back in any other place for the fear of missing our flight.

After security I complained to his manager who spoke to him yet he didn’t apologise to us.
