Heathrow Airport passport queues reached 2.5 hours in July [source]


Not sure what they're planning to do once the EU citizens are added to those queues. No one is going to want to spend longer than they did on the plane waiting to have their passports checked.

Target is 45 minutes :lol: :lol:

I find even 10 minutes unacceptable.

Just a thought: can't they start doing some checks on the plane during the flight?

It's not so simple anyway. They would need more booths and so on. This might be possible if they get rid of all the electronic gates, but it would still slow down the overall process to what it is today.

@MUTU: I don't think that's practical. The checks need to be made by border security not airline staff (which is independent from the airport). If you get security to board the plane it would overall take longer than just letting people off, I think. You also increase the risk of people bypassing security.

They will stop paying 500 000 000 000 to the eu the moment they are officially out

Heathrow Airport is not actually responsible for border control. It's the government's responsibility and it is making Heathrow look bad.

500.000.000.000.000.000.000.000.000.000!
Everyone knows that!

You just don’t accept it because you’re all blinded by the propaganda of the corrupt media!

You gotta start reading serious journalism, like guys who post videos with an occasional racist remark and give no sources whatsoever!

Hahaha... I actually didn't mean the figure though. They will continue paying for around 2 years after they leave, that is certain.

After that, they'll probably be spending money they don't right now in duties and so on.

Exactly. Border officials are independent from the airlines and the airport which is why MUTU's suggestion wouldn't work.

I know... But that ridiculous number alone shows ramsej's tilted perspective...
