Travel chaos at Dublin airport as passengers miss flights due to delays
The DAA has apologised after passengers at Dublin Airport were hit with lengthy queues this morning.
Some passengers reported waiting in line at security screening for almost two hours while others have complained about missing flights.
It comes as passenger numbers passing through the airport continue to increase following the easing of Covid-19 restrictions on international travel last month.

I was dispatching a flight in the early morning a few days back and at STD, we were still nearly 50 pax down! I can only imagine the frustration airline crews must face, not to mention the knock on delays. I'm sure many airlines will be writing to the DAA to tell them to get their act together, sharpish.
From a pax perspective, it must be all the more stressful. What happens in a case like this? You arrive at the airport 2h before, and yet miss your flight due to security. I can imagine EI, BA and "legacy" carriers being reasonable and putting people on the next flight, but what about FR? Could we see legal action being taken by pax (or groups of pax) against the DAA?
