Ok What Constitutes Priority?

Sat Oct 15, 2005 3:57 am

OK not having a whine but can someone tell me what constitutes priority in clear terms .?
i have sent an email to screeners and others about a pic but nothing.
I have a pic of something different and in this case its a borderline case if it should get priority or not but i have no answer please assist.
I have an Emirates a340-500 with the big red emirates logo now painted on the belly not usually seen on the airbus but usually seen on the 777.
ANy help appreciated

I think it's down to newsworthiness, essentially. If you don't get a reply or the picture isn't screened quickly, assume it's been passed over and will be queued normally.

Cheers

Unusual, maybe, but probably not newsworthy enough to get a priority screen. The screeners will look at the queued image quickly, but if it is not deemed priority, it will be left there with all the others (it will be one of the odd ones left in screening several days ahead of the main pack). Is your photo marked as in-screening yet?

Best regards,

Jim
Erm, is this thing on?

I was wondering the same thing. I submitted a picture of the Cessna Citation that was taken on a joyride from Florida to Georgia. I asked for priority and I havent heard anything. I dont want special service, but an E-mail would be nice. I can wait like everone else.

Thanks James and Jim for the quick replies .
No the pic is not marked in screening yet and not sure if its been looked at.
Anyway it would be a while if it got screened the normal way but i thought people would like to see something different which this is .
Thanks again
PS Agustin how long has yours been in the Q ?

Perhaps this thread helps? It's a bit old now, but I don't think much has changed.

Hi,

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-11 OH-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.  Confused 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?

Antti

Antti,

priority screening doesn't mean we lower the criteria... Your photo was more time in the queue because of the overexposure problem (it was checked by more screeners), if quality had been acceptable it would have been instantly added.

Thanks for understanding
