Instead of lines for EU and non-EU residents there should be lines for UK, EU, favoured nation status and others

Passport Control Lines

Sep 27th, 2010 | By

Check-in queues have decreased in size as on-line check-in and airport check-in machines have become widespread. What has increased has been the length of the queues at passport control. You might understand that the queues at the non-nationals/EU section takes longer to process as more questions have to be asked But why does it take longer in the UK/EU sections? Is it because EU nationals go through the same line and there are more people to process? Is it because instead of just looking at your picture, the officials now have to scan your details through and wait for them to appear on their screens?
