Hi Airpocket. No, I still use VIE and would never advise anyone to avoid it. It just takes a bit of getting used to (especially when departing). I think it’s on my list of the worst 5 because it’s such a wasted opportunity – massive investment (including a new pier which is just open or about to be and good transport links to the city) and yet they get the absolute basics wrong. Bit like TK, eh?
No dear boy, don’t avoid VIE, just give yourself a bit more time to orientate yourself around the place. I’d be very interested to hear your views when you return (unless you’re flying TK, in which case “IF you return”).
