Schipol Privium Vs UK Iris…
I have now my Privium for Amsterdam for the 3rd yr, Euros 99.
I havent ever been unable to use it. It does mean you are through from 30 seconds, never a queue, fast track crew/Privium between Schengen & Non areas if transferring, & a Privium lounge prior tyo airside if you want it also.
LHR is a 50-50 chance at T4, you have to walk far end at T3, & it appears to be powered by a very unmotivated donkey somewhere dark & unseen. Its like Russian Roulette knowing which one of 3 cameras will appear, God forbid yr head or eyes not being straight that day! I have seen many people get “Stuck” & have to be bailed out all red faced & then queue manually.
As Schipol compared to LHR, as Dutch Vs British Management, they reflect the efficiency & technology of the nature of both countries, & both airports in their Iris systems, perfectly!!!
