Ισως το χειρότερο αεροδρόμιο. Μονίμως συναντώ καποιο προβλημα, αγενεστατοι στον έλεγχο με νόμους που δεν υπάρχουν και συνολικά το προσωπικό του αεροδρόμιου εχει ως μονο σκοπο να ξεφτιλιζει τους επιβατες.

Ειναι δυνατον στον έλεγχο να αναγκάζουν τους επιβατες να βγαζουν τα φάρμακα μπροστα σε ολους; (δεν γνωρίζουν το gdpr) Ειναι δυνατον να μην γνωρίζουν αγγλικα; Ειναι δυνατον να κανουν τεστ εκρηκτικών σε ηλικιωμένη γυναικα; Ειναι δυνατον να εξυπηρετούν μονο γνωστους και φιλους;

Μόνο στο αεροδρόμιο της Κω θα τα συναντήσει καποιος αυτα. Απαραδεκτοι ολοι, χωρίς προσόντα.
