How will they be any better? Are you thinking the USA et al will be rolling out the red carpet for UK travelersThen I'd suggest they pull their finger out, or there will be a lot of new hot destinations for UK travelers next year.
You need to travel more. Biggest delay I think I've ever known was "minutes."As pointed out above, the non EU destinations are already like that.
An advantage of EU membership was faster access into member countries. Now the EU countries are just the same as non EU countries, ie, very slow.
Absolutely; and here's the rub - not you or me. Or frankly, probably anyone on this forum, or the overwhelming majority of the UK population.Hardline brexiters ultimately got something better.
*polite cough* it was a Brexiteer who was complaining about the passport check.So after the project fear of the promised outbreak of WWIII, the recession, the downfall of Western civilisation, unemployment, rise of super gonorrhea and all the other things promised, the impact of Brexit was some people don't get free entry to the Louvre and having to queue for a passport check?
I don't expect preferential treatment from anyone. I'm not sure why you think this.How will they be any better? Are you thinking the USA et al will be rolling out the red carpet for UK travelers
What was a lovely show of cooperation between 'rivals' last year was seeing that I could go through US immigration at Toronto Airport when I did a stop-over, so the following day I could fly direct from Toronto to Atlanta and not have to go through immigration.
The UK should look at doing something similar with the EU.
The USA is the worst by far. Lots of other countries I've been through in minutes others not so quickly.Seriously? I queued for 2 hours in Miami the other year. That's probably the longest. Orlando and Phili are also horrific. Oh, and Cuba - incredibly inept.
Hmmm I flew back last Tuesday and didn't have any of that. There are ongoing works happening and many of the border checks areas keep on getting closed and move around. I had to walk to a different pier than where my KLM flight landed for example. And two weeks earlier the self-service and EU lanes on that pier were out and had to go through the same area as everyone else.Anyway, back on topic and here's a new impact of Brexit
Schiphol Airport in the Netherlands isn't waiting until the end of the transition period and directs all British travellers to the Non EU immigration queue on arrival.
So this is what air travel will look like in 12 months.
Brexiteer complains he has to wait in queue at EU airport
We then have this delicious bit of Schadenfreude.
Apart from those who wanted a government answerable to them, the low paid, those who saw UK businesses move to the EU with EU grants, and anyone not on the EU gravy train. That's the problem, paying in billions for few benefits.Absolutely; and here's the rub - not you or me. Or frankly, probably anyone on this forum, or the overwhelming majority of the UK population.
No great surprise as to who was telling us how wonderful the EU is.There will be opportunities to make money as a result of turmoil in financial markets, reductions in food standards and removals of regulation; but that will be limited to a small number who are in a financial position to benefit from the misery of others. No great surprise that Mogg's sister once wrote an article on how to make a profit from water shortages.
Loads of countries have 'preferential treatment' when travelling between friendly, neighboring countries.I don't expect preferential treatment from anyone. I'm not sure why you think this.
So why wouldn't you use the self-service gates? You are just looking for problems that don't have to be there.You can do that for 11 months but after that every EU airport will look that that for UK travellers. That's just a sneak peak of the reality of post Brexit EU travel.
Terese May got a deal but it was rejected 3 times and some of those who rejected it were the hardline brexiteers.Remainers did their best to stop any form of leaving. It lead to the electoral backlash at the GE and Boris getting a huge majority. Hardline brexiters ultimately got something better.
Boris Johnson managed to defy his critics today and reach a Brexit deal with the European Union. The new agreement updates the Northern Ireland protocol of Theresa May’s Withdrawal Agreement and the…blogs.spectator.co.uk
In my experience, where self-service gates have been fully rolled out, they've just replaced manned booths, so you end up queuing for ages to get to the self-service gates!So why wouldn't you use the self-service gates? You are just looking for problems that don't have to be there.
It's well known it was considered BRINO.Terese May got a deal but it was rejected 3 times and some of those who rejected it were the hardline brexiteers.
At the time parliament was full of remain MPs.So to imply that it was down to all the remainers is incorrect.
Yup, that is possible. Always good to apply a bit of human intelligence and look where the queue is the shortestIn my experience, where self-service gates have been fully rolled out, they've just replaced manned booths, so you end up queuing for ages to get to the self-service gates!
The best place to use them is where they're being trialed, as people are scared of them.
