Other airports

I was at many airports in the country, I thought Bratsk airport was below all possible bottoms, after that you would not be surprised at all, yesterday I realized that I was wrong. Before that, I flew from the international terminal of Irkutsk many times, I have a lot of complaints, but the internal terminal is just hell. Staff is unfriendly it is softly spoken, rudeness and contemptuous attitude at every step. The cashier who sold the ticket, acted as if I owed her money. Buy tickets two adults one child 1 year 11 months, say we need a ticket with a place I will pay. The answer is why you need a place for a child, I already made you a ticket without a place, I will not alter it. After much persuasion made a ticket with a seat. On registration in the end they gave a boarding pass without a seat and it turned out when boarding the plane. Try to alter the answer to the answer, but the plane will not wait. I hope I will never use the services of this airport

periodically I send young children with their parents using a stroller. To get on the plane, you need to lift the stroller to the second floor on the "hump" and then do the same operation down! ... Shame on Irkutsk airport, but where is the ramp, escalator or elevator? Ashamed for the airport !!!!!!!!

Hello! Today we arrived at the airport 25 minutes we told the cashier that we were late! and himself led rude! not even that is not explained! zahatela not call! it's your problem!

I can not but express its attitude to the airport employees and the company's representative in connection with a non-standard situation, from which all went very worthy. 11 April in connection with the change of departure time 777 and arose from a misunderstanding us all of the staff showed understanding and participation, placing the child on the plane. Thank you all very grateful to you and the passengers !!!
