Have the Palma baggage handlers gotten any more efficient with the growth in numbers? Years ago Palma used to be one of the most efficient airports for getting you baggage and exiting the airport, but the last twice I have been there, there has been an interminable wait for baggage, and never an “official” anywhere in sight if you need to ask a question. Mallorca is a small island, surely only a limited amount of growth in airline traffic can be catered for, before accidents start to happen? Maybe the authorities ought to start thinking about limited the number of available flights to/from Palma before this occurs?
