      The only winners are regular business travelers who know the real rush times at airports.

    The worst was a recent transfer I had where they decided they needed to check everyone's visa and covid paperwork for their final flight. So 100 people in a line in a cramped shitty part of the airport, only 3 booths open checking people - airline staff, not security staff.
    ended up taking an hour. Good thing the layover was 3 hours I guess.

      I've done this a couple time through istanbull now. One time the layover was basically set to be 30 muns with how late my first plane landed, which is obviously never going to happen.

          You should never need to coom in SEA monkeys. They are ugly as fuck. Have some dignity.

        Two days ago. They're incredibly understaffed there. Had a quarter of the security lanes in operation and straight after security everyone is funnelled into about 10 automated passport control machines which are temperamental at the best of times.

            Flying out. Where are you arriving from? I've read that if it's from Schengen or US you'll go straight to departures

              If you're flying back to the US from Schiphol, itll be much quicker than hours of waiting?

              Just transfer from US so that sounds good. I think delays are due to construction. Schipol was great years ago.

              Any word on how Schiphol went, lads? I'm flying in from the US in a week and back from Schiphol in three weeks so I want to know what to expect.

    Americans love traveling by planes, while the rest of the world just arrive at the train station 10 minutes early, buy a ticket, and wait for the train to depart. You reap what you sow.

        They use plains for domestic flights becuase their country is the size of a continent (two if you include alaska).
