I have passed the point of crying and now simply laugh when I observe the below sites and sounds of Larnaca Airport:
1. ALL ABUSIVE
The tacky sight of Northern Europeans arriving to the airport with their brightly coloured Hotel "All Inclusive" wrist bands still on. Someone needs to tell them that it doesn't work outside the Hotel! I wonder how much hey spent outside the Hotel on holiday?
2. RUSSIAN LOOKS
I can't help but giggle to see the many Russian travellers make rather dis-approving facial expressions when they see the rather long "All Passports" queue at the immigration, as opposed to the far shorter EU only Fast Track Line!
3. LOUD GREEK
Quite why the Greek speaking Security personnel shout in Greek to clearly Northern European tourists and expect them to actually understand is beyond me! If one stands back to observe this comical communication, it certainly generates a chuckle. Oh please give them communication and Body Language Training!
4. FAKE CHECKS
It's laughable to see the fake Boarding Card checks of Security and Immigration, especially when there is a queue. I have often handed in the wrong one and glided through. Just watch carefully as your Boarding Card being checked for information next time!
5. BUSINESS HORROR
The expression of horror on the other faces of Businessmen who are suited and booted for business trip and suddenly forced to queue in Immigration and Security lines during the summer months with scantily dressed tourists.
