    Doncaster Robin Hood Airport

    Has anyone flown from here, my folks are flying from there tomorrow morning and as they have never been were just wondering whether there was much to do before there flight, as they don't wanna get there too early if there is nothing to do.

    Last time I was through it, it was like the Belfast City Airport used to be like - a few portakabins on the side of a runway.

    Then again, the plane I flew in on should have had "Kenwood" written on the side, and it's normal use was for making omlettes.

    Yeah no problem, i understand people are busy, they got there ok, i dropped them off this morning, nice easy 20 minute drive thru, better than 1-2 hours to manchester airport. It looks ok from the outside, i was too tight to pay for any parking and have a look inside tho, but looks like theres lots of work still going on so should only get better in the future.
