Horrible stuff, unprofessional, not acceptable comments from security screen workers

The bus ticket actually costs 6 PLN. Get an extra one for your return trip. It’s a 90 minute ticket available from the 1 Minute store in the terminal arrivals hall. The ticket machine queue outside is a lot longer, so get your tickets inside instead.

I visited the airport yesterday. Not impressed at all, very slow service, long queues. I travelled with no luggage and spent 1 hr and 40 minutes queuing, just to complete the boarding. Is that normal?
