Sorry for going a bit off topic, but I have something else about priority screening on my mind...
A bit over a week ago Finnair revealed a new Santa Claus livery on MD
-LGC as most of you know. I acquired some information about the aircrafts first flight in the new livery and headed to the airport to shoot its first departure to Singapore via Bangkok. Some 45 minutes after the plane's departure, I uploaded a photo and requested priority screening for it. The next day I headed here to see if the photo had been accepted or rejected, only to see that it was still in screening and a photo of the same plane by a Singaporean spotter was in the database.
Not until yesterday did I get a rejection message.
Now, I'm not at all furious about the image being rejected (I know it was a bit overexposed and took a risk uploading it). Just what I don't understand is, that shouldn't priority photos be screened as fast as possible and not left loitering in the queue for a week?
Or is there just something simple about the screening process I just don't understand?
