I didn’t say I haven’t seen any problem read both my posts again … and I skipped the queue because they were calling flights in the next hour … of which many had flights in the next 3/4 hours.

I said you keep blaming the lifts as the issues I’m simply saying it’s NOT the issue if when you get upstairs there’s still a horrendous queue .. people are making it upstairs in enough numbers they just can’t make it through actual security quick enough, partly it’s because of “I came 4 hours early” muppets.

I actually think BHX could massively improve this situation and that’s only let you join the line to the lift if your flight is in the next 120 mins. Atleast while the works are on going and the security scanners aren’t in optimal working conditions.

I’ll put it really simply for you if they can only process 50 people a minute through security the fact that only 100 people a minute can get up the lifts is not a problem.

The fact you don’t see scores of people free queues upstairs means the lifts is not the issue one bit.
