Suffering a 30 minute security Q is bad enough but anything over an hour in my humble opinion is not acceptable.

There are 4 reasons why Q’s are long:

1. a shortage of security checkers
2. security machines not working
3. passengers not being prepared and ready for security
4. too much hand baggage being taken through

I do not buy the excuse that too many passengers are travelling or the airport is busy – its the job of management to flex staff rotas to allow for passenger flows in the same way, that passengers need to be prepared for passing a security check point i.e. get your stuff out ready in advance…

I still passengers being allowed to take through way too much hand baggage….
