Don't stop here
Summer 2017 is a bumper year for airline travel. Price of jet fuel is cheaper, keeping air fares down. Expect long lines, queues at European airports with security and passport control.
Leaving from Spain or Portugal, give yourself three hours minimum to get through security and passport control so you don't miss your flight. When you first arrive take selfie, with airport clock and que. You may need this evidence for flight compensation. Keep hand luggage to a minimum.
