Nothing to do with scores of people turning up far too early for their flights and causing huge congestion?

Lots turning up before the 2 hour window to drop their bags but then 2 hours not being enough to pass security because people on HBO have turned up 4 hours early.

Personally I wouldn’t let you near the lift queue if your flight isn’t for 2 hours.

Tbh when I’ve used it the queue was long but reduced very quickly, 3 lifts with 50 people at a time.

Got upstairs and was pulled to the front as flight was within 1 hour and even got food and a couple drinks in clubrooms.
