If they can't source enough 3D scanners (an issue I guess for most airports) perhaps they can put them in the Fast Lane first and give those of us who grind our way through for our livelihoods a bit...

Thanks for the responses.
So two separate new security areas both at the check in level 2 - that's re-assuring.
IIRC the original T2 security area was on Level 2 before it had its last major...

I have a question for those who have inside knowledge of the T2 rebuild.
I've already used the new Pier 1 and got a sense of the scale of the new construction - the extension itself seems bigger...

No slight intended on Jet2 - they're great at what they do. It was more of a comment related to 'you get what you pay for' being a loco and pointing out that any handling issues are their own - being...
