I have been through it about 6 times since it opened and it has been fast, clean, spacious. BAA can get it right when they need to. However, the outside of Terminal 5 - appalling. BAAs standard falls way short of the Euorpean airports I have travelled through - Dusseldorf, Basel, Schipol. Further afield - Singapore's Changi, Bangkok, Hong Hong - all run like clockwork, are clean, spacious. My complaints about BAA's airports are things like travelators and escalators not working, toilets dirty and not working, dark, dingy walkways, long, poorly-planned walks from gate to lounges or from gate to baggage claim, surly staff - the list is endless. Importantly, none of this would be tolerated in these other airports. Why do we put up with this here?

I fly regularly and I really dont think that selling off an airport or two will make any difference. When I fly the destination, price of the flight and the carrier are the elements that make up my decision. I would fly from any of the London airports! Gatwick is ok and Stansted is pretty ok too- its only Heathrow that needs to be bull-dozed and started all over again!

Returning to Manchester from the USA on Saturday we were greeted by the regulat wait for an airbridge (15 mins), stopped from leaving the gate area due to another plane boarding, 3 out of 4 travelators not working between gate & arrivals and an hour from landing to get our bags. Perhaps MAG should sort out Manchester before spreading its wings further.
