One or 2 bad stories, but not enough to loose any sleep on.
Problem is that today everyone is a journalist and peeved passengers made to wait, often fairly reasonable times take to social media, ping pictures off to gullible news media; and before you know it a few dimwit journalists (and there are a fair few of them around, and not exclusively in the local and national press, but also on respected broadcast organisations) are blowing a small inconvenience into a full blown "hostage" situation.

Does MAN (or any other airport) want this kind of publicity for the sake of a few hundred extra pounds in net revenue?

You only have to look at the way the accident in Sinai last weekend is being reported. Somehow it's unreasonable that investigators can't give chapter and verse on its cause within 48 hours!
