    free water at stanstead 10th Jul 17 at 8:50 AM
    'Stansted told us it has eight water stations in total – six in the departure lounges and satellite buildings, and two in international arrivals. They're all near toilets.
    The airport says: "We also provide ‘honesty box’ water stations in the departure lounge. A donation of £1 is suggested as a suitable contribution per bottle." These are located in the main departure lounge, near the monorail system that goes to the satellite buildings. - MSE


    Were exactly is this free bottled water, as I could not find it.
    Do you want your money back, and a bit more, search for 'money claim online' - They don't like it up 'em Captain Mainwaring

    I don't see anything saying there is free bottled water. You have an honesty box for bottled water. The free water is possibly drinking water fountains, especially as they are near the toilets.

    All the free water I've seen at UK airports has been from fountains - just bring your own empty bottle and fill it after you clear security.

    Free water is via drinking fountains so you can fill your own bottles. AFAIK the bottled water stations (which are not free because they're on a honesty box system and the bottles are £1) are buy the boarding gates. That's presuming they still have them.

    The free fountains at LGW North Terminal are as soon as you've cleared the security x-ray machine, but before you get into the Departure Lounge.

    I've never seen free bottles of water at Stansted! The cheapest water is in HEMA at £1 a bottle.

    The bottled water with the honesty box is just where you leave the shop/restaurant area go to the gates. Stacks and stacks of the stuff. It's not free, you put a donation in the honesty box. It's only free if you're dishonest!

    Free water fountains are just after security.
