Catching my plane in Lisbon this afternoon proved that Frankfurt isn't the worst aiport on earth. Lisbon could as well be. While it isn't large and you actually find where you want to go – you have to walk around many corners to get to wherever you want to be. Also, it isn't hospitable at all and having time to kill is a pain - with only unpleasant seating areas being available if you don't want to spend a fortune on a mediocre meal or go to some gross international fast-food chain.
To top things off, the girl at the check-in counter wasn't able to put my luggage through all the way to Birmingham, meaning that I'll have to pick up my bag in Frankfurt and check it in again immediately afterwards.
