Having arrived in Athens a week ago (also my first trip to Athens Venizelos), I have to say I am not happy with the airport. I have yet to see the departure terminal, however friends have told me it has much to be desired. From the gate (arrived on Virgin Atlantic 1002), we had to walk soooo much to baggage claim it was not even funny. Then baggage claim was a free for all-being in Greece this was to be expected-but it seemed worse then Hellenikon! I believe that the airport also looks extremely out of place in the Greek Landscape, if anything it looks like a reincarnation of Munich Franz-Joseph Strauss. Many of my Greek friends tell me that Greece as a whole is not very satisfied with the airport as well.
Countrary to popular belief however, there was little traffic in and around the airport.
Anyone else have opinions on LGAV, if so what do you think the airport lacks in terms of facilities etc.
