@ChrisBCN Are you saying all the scanners are now swapped out for the new kit? If so, I assume that explains at least in part the carnage airside as people had gone prepped for a 2hr wait in security and were suddenly through in 5 mins.

Yes. The old area is boarded away, the new hall is in use. The route to the new hall is still a mess, so I assume that is still being worked on.

It’s still a very long wait in security (20 minutes through fast track, regular was much, much, much longer).

Don’t automatically assume that the new scanners will speed things up – it’s all about how many lanes you have open i.e. how many staff you want to pay for…
