Manchester Flight

Came back the other night through T2 , No member of UKBF to be seen. It was 2am though so maybe there have been some cutbacks.

They could be having a "work to rule" because of those new Quick exit lanes where a machine checks your passport etc, Ive got one of those new chipped passports but each time Ive come through T2 they have been out of use.
They spend all that money on that equipment and dont bother using it, they will be thinking that their future is grim when machines can do their job!

Re: Manchester Flight

The quick exit lanes where closed. The wife wanted to try them.

There was a Group 4 person barking orders at people in passport control "One person to hand over the passport with the photo page showing", So I handed mine passport over and said to the wife that was a request, not a order just worded to order you todo something.

Looked over the guys shoulder as we passed behind only managed to see photos of people.

Re: Manchester Flight

Landed at Manchester last night about 11-30, plenty about. Got stopped for the 7th time in my last eight returns to the UK since February, getting genuinely annoyed now. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/cute.png

Has anyone noticed they are all dressing in black shirts now.

Re: Manchester Flight

PP I hope you are asking for a record everytime you are stopped, as they won't record it themselves, also you need to assert your authority and demand why they have stopped you, if they don't give any reasons it's obviously a random pull which are illegal, don't let them into your bags without a valid reason And always ask for a record of the stop, so if the shit hits the fan you can claim harrassment with the paperwork to back it up.
