Thursday 10th May 6.50pm flight out of Edi to Dalaman.
Easy checkin in of luggage with friendly efficient hospitable staff. We had already booked our seats and had checked in online so once the luggage was away we enjoyed a brief walk thru Duty Free.
This flight was completely full with lots of children which was surprising as it wasn’t school holiday time. The flight and service was food so no issues.
The return flight however was horrendous. 2.25am 18th May from Dalaman to Edinburgh. It wasn’t the flight time however, it was the time it took to check in our
We arrived at the airport at 12.15am in the early hours of 18th May and stood in a huge queue until 1.25am when we eventually got to the front desk to check in our luggage.
Due to the volume of families with additional luggage and prams and again a full to capacity plane, the two desks that were open were just not efficient.
Once thru to the gate, we had to go thru security check again and were unable to purchase water from the shop within the gate as it was ribboned off as we shared the gate with A and B and we were in B so we drew the short straw.
Please ensure you take water and something to eat with you when you eventually get to the gate especially at this time of the morning.
