Terminal 3 at Manchester must rank among the worst airport experiences in Europe. Arriving at T3 is chaotic, with a lack of investment in border control and immigration staff; passengers are arriving from two directions and you can easily spend 30 minutes waiting to get through. But when it comes to departures this terminal has really hit rock bottom. I... More

It now appears to be £3.50 for up to 30 minutes wait in order to pick up arriving passengers, and if the arrival is delayed it would be a great deal more of course. A clear money-making venture.

The only down side was the cafe / refreshments it was not worth going in the food... More

Arrived Manchester airport this afternoon, cannot believe the ineptitude of ground staff and border control! Walk down the stairs of the plane to walk a short distance to the terminal building and a passenger lights a cigarette on the tarmac - no staff around at all to prevent him. Get inside the building and find our progress to border control... More

Arrived at 12:00 midnight - absolutely no facilities - except a Spar - with v helpful staff. Hungry and cold with a 3 hour wait - the only place open was Refresh at the Railway Station. Waiting room was warm and staff friendly and helpful. But this is 21st century! an international airport! Surely they could and should do better... More

Absolutely appalling. Disorganised, unprofessional and chaotic. In particular the food&drinks staff are the rudest we have met by far in any airport we have been in. Its no use complaining to management as they ignore you, its true - they really do. Vending machines and trollys dont accept anything, or they are broke. No help from staff. Of of cause,... More

Absolutely appalling. Disorganised, unprofessional and chaotic. Seems to be standard procedure to X Ray everything twice and then leave passangers to find their belongings from widely dispersed trays. International airport ----what a joke.

on the way out the security gates were busy although they did move quite quickly. the staff are rude and bossy. I understand we need security checks and that the airport is busy but not everyone who passes through is a threat to national security. The food concessions at terminal 2 are appalling they really need some improvement top prices... More

Anniversary Disaster I booked via Manchester Parking website 24/8/16 and decided to use their partner – Car Park Manchester – What a mistake! We were due to fly out from T3 at 5pm on 2/9/16 so arrived 3pm with a phone call to the number listed 25 mins in advance (2.35pm) as requested. The pick-up driver arrived 3.25pm! I driver... More
