MAN introduces passenger drop-off fees.

Is there any other airport other than UK ones that rip off the flying public like this ?
There's now a £3 for 5 mins and £4 for 10 mins fee for those being dropped off outside the terminals.

With MAN-LAS doubling to 4 x week on the 744 next summer that'll take some of the pressure for seats off the LHR-LAS 789 flight. Smart move.
I do know that the current LGW-LAS flight has people from all over the country catching it, so it makes little difference where ever it goes from in the UK.
