On Friday, 11 November 2022, I arrived at Terminal 1 at the Lisbon airport (7:30am) with my wife and two friends.
We were preparing to board United UA65, Gate 41, for a 10:15am departure to Newark, NJ.

Our passports and/or boarding passes were checked no less than four times at:
a) United check in
b) Passenger/carry on luggage screening
c) Passport check in hall
d) Gate 41

When we arrived at (c), the Passport control hall, we found we were among 600-800 people awaiting passport check by only TWO customs agents handling non-electronic passports! It took 35-40 minutes for us to get to the front of the line. The delays were so bad that a number of frantic passengers began to surge (cut through the line) claiming to others that they were going to miss their planes. This incited anger amongst the other passengers who waited in their place in line. Some like me, forced these line jumpers to stop. Some surged forward and did make it to the front of the line. NOT ONE POLICEMAN or CUSTOMS agent ever appeared to take control of these unruly people. Only after nearly 30 minutes did a third,
then a fourth customs agent finally show up to help expedite the huge back log of passengers.

Then, we arrived at our Gate 41 only to find that the seating area was roped off! The agent behind
the rope told me that we had to wait for the "police" to show up so that passports could be checked yet again!
Every United passenger had to stand in a single file line in a narrow hall way for at least another
30 minutes before the "police" (or customs agent?) showed up to again check the passports
and allow passengers to then be seated.

I never expected that I would experience this kind of 3rd world treatment in Portugal.

There is no excuse for not having the customs processing station adequately manned (with
a police presence) to expeditiously process passengers. Had fights broken out, there were no
police in that huge hall to stop the perpetrators. There is no excuse to force passengers to
stand outside of their gate and wait for customs or police officials to re-process passports AFTER
they have just been processed at the customs center!

This was a disgraceful experience that has left me bitter about Portugal.

Absolutely shocking.

T2 makes a cattle shed feel comfortable. Flight delays massive, people sitting on the floor, very small gates and then to cap it the airport withdrew the flight slot and we sat on the plane for 1 1/2 hours before take off.

What a miserable and never to be repeated experience
