    All fine if you're flying to the Costa Del Wank, but when you need to get to serious destinations like Qatar, Singapore, Buenos Aires etc.. you know you're coaching it down to the Smoke

    And there plently of direct flights to Qatar from London City I suppose?

    I live in London. Voted I hate London.

    I hate flying, I hate airports, I hate planes, I hate the people associated with it all. Most of all I hate RyanAir.

    Really, really, with a fkin passion hate RyanAir.

    I used to like Luton Airport, but that's got shit. Used to like Stanstead, but that's got shit. Only flown once from City, and it's tollerable.

    Heathrow is a hell hole, and Gatwick might as well be on Mars. I can probably almost get to Manchester Airport quicker than Gatwick. Fkin M25...

    My big holiday next year will be utilising the car. Last time I did the same, was one of the best holidays and travel experiences I've had. Apart from getting off the ferry in Dover on the way back which is the pinnacle of depression.

    Well I live about 15 mins from Heathrow and 45 from Gatwick. Much prefer Gatwick, easy parking, clean, good facilities, only ever had one issue getting in and out quickly.

    I prefer Gatwick, smaller, quicker to get through and generally a nice airport.

    Heathrow only has one vote do far, but I think you could break it down to T1-3 , T4 and T5 as they could be different airport, in terms of getting there facilities etc.

    LOL this pretty much sums me up! I love both of those, nothing can beat a good pain au chocolat on a Sunday morning. Assuming I had a fry up with KETCHUP the morning before anyway

    London City for fast check-in, security, passport control and baggage reclaim, although £5 a pint in the bar is a f*cking joke...

    Stansted is 45 minutes drive, pretty small and so easy to navigate. Never had a problem flying from there on easyjet or ryanair

    Come on you Hatters... I'm actually quite fond of Luton. Its one of the quickest airports to get to from my Ma's place in North West London and its pretty compact and easy to navigate with short walks to the gates. I've also seen Stelios about half a dozen times due to the fact that its also the spiritual home of EasyJet.
