Continuing my trip report to Bordeaux, France



The pax bus dropped us at lounge 1, which is the central part of the airport. Very convenient when you have an international connection or when you want to head to the lounge.

Immigration lines were completely empty. However Stuttgart is one of the first arrival of the day.

Welcome to the lounge. Love how Alitalia disappeared from the list ;)


photo img_2455photo img_2456

Welcome as usual, cold and uninterested. I went directly for a shower reservation. 

Short review of the offer 


photo img_2457photo img_2458photo img_2459

Nothing to write home about. Quantities and diversity is present.

After asking, my shower is finally ready. Normally they should send you a SMS…

The shower is very basic: just a mix soap/shampoo, no other amenities. Teeth brush and shaver. That's it. No tissue in the dispenser (and it's always like this). Poor image of the lounge.

Continuing my review with the drink offer. All softs are in dispensers. Orange juice is even not available this morning. Wines are normally some 3€ bottles….

A few strong alcohols are available though.

Leaving the lounge for my flight. Immigration is now much more crowded.

There was an immigration control. Main reason is COVID control, they may ask for vaccination or test proof when you come from a red area. Nothing in my case (and you may tell them whatever you want, they don't control boarding pass).

    Today I learned from your FR that the dutch word for showed is the same as in French. haha

    AMS: Efficient but not nice

    It's definitely not the prettiest airport, but it is convenient

    BOD: Not my taste to say the least

    Why's that? Because of the border control for an intra-schengen flight, which is dumb in my opinion---but they're doing it everywhere now. Had a long queue at TLS coming from MAD this summer. I haven't been to Merignac in years but I remember is being cute...like easily navigable. I may be remembering wrong though

    Thanks for sharing!

      Aha yes was wondering why Douche stands on the key?!?^^
      I don't like BOD because you have to always take stairs going up and down again, aisles are small, all waiting areas as well. Most of the time floor is durty and I don't even speak about the bathrooms... What is cute is the A concourse where Volotea starts most of their flights.
