Be aware to look for the terminal where you must check in, before the departure from your hotel in Barcelona.
Terminal 2 is the old terminal, where you have national flights, but also some other airlines operating in the old terminal. It is important you to check the terminal you are leaving from before you are planning to get to BCN airport. IF you take a taxi or if you take a bus or train to the airport, you must check the name of the company you are fying with. Terminal 1 is really far from Terminal 2, so you might be loosing your flight if you take the wrong terminal.
You must check the terminal where your airline operates from the following list to know where you should check in, otherwise you might be loosing your flight. Also, do not trust to let the taxi driver to let you know which terminal to choose. The terminal is new and taxi drivers are still not familiar with the airlines list.
Check the following list carefully (provided by AENA, the company managing Barcelona Airport):
