Keith Massey, York
What was acceptable post-war and the expansion of air travel from the 1960s is not relevant today.
The airport facilities are virtually third world and a disgrace that it represents two major Northern cities when we are endeavouring to promote the Northern Powerhouse structure for serious future government investment.
I decided several years ago to exclude LBA from any of my holidays or business travel after some of the worst landings in my life.
My wife was a nervous passenger and I would spend most of the holiday anxiously worrying about the landing conditions regarding high winds – and serious crosswinds – that affect this airfield.
The airfield is in the wrong place and far too high – and not a penny more should be spent on it. For holidays (though you are restricted) I prefer Doncaster, which is low down, with a superb, long, flat runway, modern terminal and extensive car park facilities and excellent accessibility by motorways, railway and bus connections.
This is the airfield that should represent Yorkshire looking to the future.
