Processing time is also an issue with the new machines. According to reports in the national press, it will take 20 seconds to screen each passenger so imagine how long (even assuming there are multiple machines in operation) it would take to process travellers on a fully booked B747 or A380 ?

One effect of the new security rules will be to enhance the popularity of taking flights from smaller airports (like London City) or booking business class-only transatlantic flights (like London City to New York) as it will be easier to process passengers in a more timely manner.
