Readers’ poll: What is the scariest UK airport and why?

The Dallas Morning News’ Airline Biz Blog has recently posted a list (along with videos for each entry) of the top 10 scariest airports in the world according to SmarterTravel. However, only one UK airport, Barra Airport on the Isle of Barra in Scotland, was mentioned. The reason? Its actually a beach.

Hence, we want to ask our UK readers and regular UK flyers: What are the scariest airports in the UK and why? Is Barra really that scary compared to some of the other airports mentioned where there are volcanoes, buildings or even birds to navigate around? Feel free to post your comments below.

    It's likely not on the scary list, but it seems to be the hardest bloody airport to land at – Bournemouth. And that's before one has even taken off.

    Not because of any issues other than it has taken no less than twelve utterly frustrating and fruitless phone calls to find out what the landing fee is and confirm arrival/parking procedures. This included being put through to the Airport Manager's mobile when he was on the apron as a large jet started it's engines and each of us shouting at each other down the phone to be heard…

    Is there some secret portal in the Solent CTA that one uses? If so let me know its co-ordinates, as currently I have given up in frustration.
