Dublin Airport - not Pier D

Dublin Airport - not Pier D

As far as I know there seems to be no current plan to replace the grossly inadequate, downstairs INS pre - clearance facility at the end of Pier B.

Now it seems odd to spend shedloads of money on a shed there and yet do nothing about this seriously underscale facility.

Under stress when one USA flight is outbound, hellish when two or more flights are waiting. As far as I can see there is no plan to resolve this problem, where passengers are funneled into a very small holding pen with few seats, toilets & beer facilities only.

A nice final tribute to outgoing visitors from the USA.

The problem is that Dublin Airport is woefully managed. There has never been any forward planning. At the same time, there is little interest in looking after what is already there. The politicians take partial blame too, they can never make up their minds...Poor leadership and lack of foresight are what has made Dublin Airport what it is today, a hotch potch, ugly mecano set. It's an airport worthy of any second rate second world country. My 'favourite' touches are the 'immigration' booths in pier A. In fact all of pier A portacabin and pier B. They should build another terminal at the far side and let it be run by the private sector!!
