They don't want you to do that!
I'm sure that years ago, they even had an "observation area" and friendly signs to it. I even went over to another terminal in search. Not only is there no "official" area, I couldn't find any accidental plane-watching location. Then I noticed the multi-storey car park! Ding! So I walked round 3 sides of it before finding a pedestrian entrance (I don't know why I always walk the long way round large buildings but I do). Into the lift and out on the top deck.
Eventually, I did find somewhere to watch planes but there's no way I'm giving the "authorities" the opportunity to ban that too!
In the departure lounge, I found some curious things. there was a bar and to make it homely, it had a fireplace with a flat panel display

There was also a shop selling rolling luggage. This seemed rather late in the day. We no longer had our checked baggage and how many people would decide to decant their cabin baggage into a brand new rolling container and dump the old one?
