Yes, it can be efficient, but when it is, we look at each other and say 'Why can't it be like this all the time?'

I flew through Luton at 0715 on the Sunday of half term. It was very very busy, but all the security lanes were open and we were through almost without waiting. Why could MAN not do this on the 24th December, when I suffered a one hour wait in line for security.Instead they had three lanes out of 12 open.
I suspect its both in reality. T3 can be ok at times but its often rammed too particularly in the early evening when it can be a nightmare. My colleagues that visit from Belfast always travel back in the evening from T3 and regard MAN as the worst airport in the UK because of it. They have no choice but to fly of course. Others do have choices and the airport needs to address that.
