This particular piece of satire is nearly a year old. The sad thing is that its still as relevant and ironic today as it was then!

I am not a gambling person
With all this bad publicly
What are the odds that the BFS specials raise there heads again
Been a while since they were knocking on the door with their cry of "there's a perfectly good airport just up the road"

The 6th lane re-opens in a matter of days I believe. I'm sure once there is 8 lanes it will be fine.

Madeira (FNC) not on schedule yet for July although showing Monday for April 2020. Free slots on Wed AM and Pm and one on Sunday AM
Hopefully got these correct
Looks like Madeira is being dropped for Summer 2020 as the April 2020 flights have now gone.

Haha been watching this tread to much amusement down here in the Canaries. A wee winter break courtesy of staff travel that most of you lot will never get. As for trolling, Pan your one of the worst next to Cutters who was banned from this tread for , 6 months. He was new here recently but obviously still hasent learnt his lesson.

At no point in the nearly 15 years I have been posting on here have I been banned from PPRuNe or any of its threads (tread is something on a tyre, for instance). Nor have I, unlike you, Mutley, needed to reincarnate myself.

Anyway. I was coming on here to say that security at BFS this morning (late AM), was surprisingly smooth. Plenty of staff around. I had feared the worst, but it all went well. Hopefully, it continues until they get the new lanes open.

Past through Bfs on Wednesday, about 1.30pm. Straight through security, although it is quieter at that time of day. plenty of staff on duty. There were 4, what I would describe as helpers on duty, I wonder if they had been brought in by the security firm as I don't think they were local? It got me thinking, since airport/security operator should have some idea of when there could be a risk of bad publicity due to delays, why did they not have helpers going through the queues trying to help those with flights due soon to try and make it through security? It might not always have been successful, but at least it would have shown they were trying to help pax. Those complaining have always said lack of help/information. Although there will always be those who will always turn up at the last minute regardless of warnings.

It got me thinking, the fluids etc rules started about 13 years ago. I don't think procedures or equipment have changed that much during that time. Considering the cost and wasted time of all of this, you would think that much more could have been done to invest much better and more efficient equipment.

Guess part of the problem, too many involved in the process don't want to invest the money needed on research, quite happy for god knows how much of our lives to be wasted standing in airport queues worldwide.

But Bfs has had lack of investment, you only have to look at the extended roof outside the arrivals door. You might as well be outside when it rains. I have emailed GK maybe 3 times over the past few years asking when it is going to be fixed. The answer, soon, but it never has been. It is a disgrace.

But if you think Bfs is bad, let me tell you it was a complete pleasure compared to the hole that is Manchester airport, that I experienced on Thursday on my way back. Awful place.

Next month I will experience Bhd, Lhr and Sin. It will be interesting to compare.

Seven minutes is a long time to stand about. Have been through security at London City, Gatwick and Heathrow in under three minutes.

sNN20 I was not complaining about the time it took. Looking to this summer the improvement in security once complete there should not be the delays we had in summer 2018
