I recently had the misfortune to have a connecting flight at this airport. It was an oasis of calm until we went to the gate. There were hundreds of people there. It was like an Indian train station in films. We had to queue at an entry gate to have our documents checked + were directed to the end of a long, long line. When we got to the front were were told that we had to join another line to get visas checked again. Got to the front of this huge line where young man checked our papers while dealing with another query on the phone. Told us to go to front of original line. A group of loud mouth Americans (all wearing black T shirts for some 2018 Alaska tour) told us to go to the back of the line. So they are in charge of procedures at this airport? Anyway back at the end of line. Eventually get to front and told that papers not stamped + go back to second line again. At this point I was angry + asked them to get the idiot boy over + do his job properly. Can I give this no stars? All personnel were rude and incompetent + why was almost everyone in the airport pushed into one small area?
