Could be the case if you are flying from the UK because Brits aren't in the Schengen agreement, so we have to show passports when Schengen members just walk in.

Ireland isn't in Schengen either, so that wouldn't account for any possible differences between the treatment of Eire vs UK passports.

LCY is non-Schengen. The document defines scenarios for non-Schengen origins in transit to both non-Schengen and Schengen destinations..

Thanks for the replies all is becoming clear the information was given me by a friend who lives in Spain and travels on a UK passport, she had trouble at Frankfurt presumably because she was travelling Shengen to non Schegnen. Once again thanks to all.

What border checks you need to pass at any airport is determined by where your flight has come from and where you are going next. It has nothing to do with the documents that you carry.

What “trouble”? You’ve got a passport - if you need to show it, show it.....

On the contrary, if I have to show my passport, it usually means I'm having trouble.

My success rate with e-gates averages about 10%.

Yup, otherwise every passenger getting off a flight would have to have their documents checked to establish whether they needed their documents checked or not........

After Brexit you will have to stand in the naughty corner for an hour. And there won't be any filghts anyway. It must be true - I read it on here.
