Being reasonably well travelled, I saw number of awkward things here and there. But a full fledge security check (metal detector plus luggage scan) immediately followed by … a second one: that was a first! In Nairobi, for some reason, BA and the local authorities apparently couldn’t agree, so they each run their screening, back to back. There is only one word coming up to my mind: ridiculous!
Nothing surprises me in Nairobi, Swissdiver. The screening on entry to the terminal is a joke with people milling around – I always assumed that’s why BA (and other airlines) repeated it at the gate.
I had my BP checked 8 times on a recent trip with EK. Including one instance at the gate where it was checked and I literally took one pace forward…”can I see your BP please”. Totally laughable. Al Shaabab would have a field day if they wanted.
