Two days ago I flew from AMS to PHL with US.
when we arrived at PHL everything was quite alright, and i must say the customs drill went faster then it normally does.
But then the nightmare started.
when walking to the connction gates I ran into a line then was a mile long
as you might expect these are the security checks.
it became clear to me that all the airports werent designed for this and there for the line almost stood outside on the train platform
to make a long story short, I missed to flight because of this line. and i wasn;t the only one. some people even missed there international flight to europe and had to sleep in a hotel.
My question and observation is, does it really help.
cause all it does is making flying a nightmare.
and we have seen that if you are really determined you can smuggle something onboard.
what are your thoughts ??
