It's true that the Terminals 1,2 and 3 are bad. It's old and it does not look very clean. Smoking at the airport? I didn't see anybody this year smoking over there, only in the smoking-areas. that was an issue of 2 or 3 years ago when everybody in Madrid smoked in public buildings/places. Now it's different.
But I feal comfortable in Barajas, I don't know why, but how nice and big Paris CHDG and Schiphol Amsterdam are, it will not give me the sense of safety and feeling at home over there. Barajas feels good in mine opinion.

Specially when the new terminal will be opened, I can't wait anymore evreytime I see it I want to see the building from inside!

MADRID TE GUSTARA!!!
YOU WILL LIKE MADRID!!!

Top marks for originality.

Trouble is, this could also be its downfall.

Inside, the colours, the wood and the undulating roof make it look spectacular.

But from the exterior, those same bright-colours, which go with the circular columns, fluid shapes and windows make it look like a ******* dodgy British leisure centre!!!

I guess it's 'a love it or hate it' thing.

OK... is see

Also the Renfe will built a Cercanias (Commuter trains) station next to the metro station L-8. I don't know exactly how long it will take.

The runways are prepared, They are testing the electronic systems as far as I know.

That's true! Madrid will have the most beautyfull airport in Europe and also in the world.

I like the design inside. I can't wait to get out of the plain and enter in the finger and then see the enormous airport inside!

La grandeur de la France?

This is just one example of how french people can't admit things go better outside France. France is somewhat "stuck" for the last years. No new investments, not really important new infrastructures. You've got to admit it, french people don't like that a "poor" country like Spain is passing over France in some aspects.

If you want to think the design of terminals is boring and awful, then it's up to you. However, this "boring" and "awful" design is on the first pages of architecture magazines all over the world, and it's admired all over the globe for being one of the most important airport investments ever done.

I love France, I really admire french culture, but the worst thing you have is your infinite "chauvinisme". With our characteristic modesty and making no publicity at all, Spain is taking off. You'll have to manage with living with a developed and modern Spain... But will you ever be able to? Maybe not, french will be still thinking that every single thing done in France is much better.

And this message does not want to piss anybody off, just a personal thought that I think many people will agree on.

Salut à toute la France.

I totally agree.

The funny thing is that the French drive in "Spanish" cars (a Renault Factory is in Spain). They don't know it.

I know a French friend of mine and he is always jealous when I take him to Madrid or another parts of Spain and he is always comparing. Al the good things are not so good at all for him, all the bad things in Spain, or the things that are not so good as in France, he thinks and says that Spain is terrible in those aspects. But he knows that we have highways of almost, and sometimes of better quality than in France, and in Spain we don't have (the great part) to pay for it!

And the projects of Madrid Barajas, ofcourse you like it or you don't like it. But the project itself is very interesting!
