During my adventure to Australia I took off and landed in the following airports – Abu Dhabi (twice), Sydney (three times), Uluru (Ayers Rock), Melbourne and Singapore. From the smallest to the largest all these airports were modern, well designed and efficiently run.
At Dublin, traffic congestion resulted in a wait of nearly half hour on a taxiing runway before disembarking. We were then processed in a dirty, pokey immigration area accompanied by a background noise from a tinny PA system apologising for the chaos caused by the accidental triggering of an alarm system.
I was home.
