Nottingham GB Need to improve.
The suitcase racks are so badly designed that you could only get 3 cases in a section, rather than 10 cases if the racks were 6 inch higher. Due to this problem many people weren't allowed onto the bus even though there was many seats available. Drivers used to help putting the cases on the racks but not anymore.

Walton le Dale GB Regularly use this airport
Arrived at Manchester airport at 7am on 26/11/17, intending to park at Jet Parks1, a pre booked parking space. On exiting the roundabout, we where confronted with roadworks,signage and cones, which were of absolutely no help whatsoever in locating the jetparks 1 car park. Fortunately we located a Jetparks bus driver who provided us with directions,otherwise I suspect we would still be driving round now trying to find the car park !. We attempted to contact the APH CUSTOMER services telephone number listed on the booking confirmation, to be informed via recorded message that customer services was not available until 9am, not particularly helpful.
Eventually we located the car park, entry was very straightforward. I then noticed that the car park was very poorly lit and of a temporary stone hardcore construction. The surface was very uneven and was holding an awful lot of standing water. This whole experience caused a great deal of upset and distress prior to arrival at the terminal building and the start of our holiday. I have used the APH car parking service previously and have had an excellent service, however on this occasion the service provided by APH was woefully inadequate.

I am sorry to hear about your negative experience. As APH acts as a booking agent for this site I have passed your comments on so that service can be improved for future customers during the disruption of the building works. Thanks, Georgie
