well.... flying to france last year in mid november, i was security checked at every possible place, at CDG mainly, but also at MAN, i have never been through either airport before (apart from CDG when i was 5 or so) and didnt know what to expect with regards to security.
I was thoroughly (i say i, when in fact it was my hand baggage mainly) checked during all possible security check points at CDG, all of my hand baggage was removed from the bag and placed on either the table- by the x-ray machine thingy or close by, it was very embarassing- especially as i had ermm..... dare i say it..... STEPS album in there lol, amongst other unusual things. All of my hand baggae was checked thoroughly at both MAN and CDG.
I didnt mind, it was a little embarassing, but its all for safety's sake, and i understood. Maybe they checked me because i am indian- and kinda look arab- with all due respect to arab people.
anyway i had a very nice uneventful flight and i suppose thats what matters at the end of the day- safety
P.S. i think i will start a new thread on the most unusual piece of hand baggage ever taken on board
