It wasn't the number of staircases that was the problem...

...it was the lack of staff numbers at both the easyJet check in desk and at the scanners in the security area. There were lots of spare check in desks and scanners not being used.

Having ~15 flights going out from 6am to 7am simply requires more staff to process the numbers involved.

It has been noticeable that with the advent of single line check in to all destinations and the introduction of online check in pax are turning up later than they used to and causing bottle necks at the G4S controlled security points.

This what the new security channel will look like in June .

So, if the there hadn't been the bottleneck at the check in desks, the situation would have been far worse at security!

I thought that this problem had been resolved?

People are under the impression nowadays that they can more or less turn up at anytime at the single queue check in and waltz through security because they have already checked in online.

Obviously the more people under that impression creates bottle necks further down the line, ie security.

I notice for two days on the run the BBC North West text news have had two pages telling us Liverpool Airport has had flights cancelled left right and centre and can expect more, but F*** all about cancelled flights from Manchester, typical of the Manchester Mafia at the BBC in Manchester.

I´m in Barcelona at the moment, due to land back in Liverpool tonight at 23.55, what do you think my chances are of getting back to the UK tonight? I know this morning´s flight was cancelled. Is this ash cloud expected to clear quickly?

I presume you are flying Easyjet? If so, this flight is cancelled according to Barcelona's live flight arrivals / departures:
Arrival
Departure

If you were flying with Jet2 you'd get taken to Newcastle & coached. If you were flying with Monarch there's a good chance you'd get to Birmingham, with Viking you'd get to gatwick...............but with Easy..........it won't be easy...you are in a choice of refund or rebook within 30 days job :-(

If he was flying with Jet2 or Monarch....he wouldnt be flying to Liverpool would he!

Im sure you have realised by now, its cancelled. The problem is that Liverpool closed at 1300 Local time, so no planes could depart from Liverpool to Barcelona, otherwise, easyJet would have got you back to the UK. Plus several of the morning flights into Liverpool were diverted elsewhere (LTNx2, BRS, BHX) meaning the aircrafts are out of place for when the airspace does open

Nothing childish easyboy, just factual.
The airspace closures were forecast/predicted 24hrs in advance.
Some airlines made contingency plans. eg Jet2 set up a base in Newcastle & operated most flights from there. others attempted similar operations.
This disruption is likely to continue for the next 12 months.
If the airlines want people to continue to book with them, then they need to be more pro active than just to cancel flights carte blanche.
With a year of disruption ahead, it's time to start thinking outside the box a bit.
BTW, yes I am a fan of Easy, I use them all the time.(for now anyway)

Yes, G4S are hiring at the moment although a lot of staff have already been appointed and trained prior to the change.

Liverpool's new security area should have gone live this morning, any ideas how it is going? (Seven new bi-directional Rapiscan machines installed, with automatic tray return, to cope with the queues that form at peak times)
