    I'm going to Italy today from Gatwick with BA, just want to know how long I should spare for the security checks today, I have no idea and don't want to miss my flight.

    Probably the wrong thing to say but, this did make me chortle on Monday when I heard . He even removed his shoes to be X-rayed , and chose Lisbon 'cos it sounded far away :D .

    On a serous note , I think this could only happen with a kid , probably just squeezed in between a few families , and moved between them . An adult would have to physically hand over their passport at each checkpoint , what parent would trust their child with their own ? My wife won't even trust me with mine :D

    Yeah I heard that, pretty funny. I really need an answer, phoning Gatwick might be pretty tough, I'll have a go.

    Check the flight has not been cancelled first on the BA website . there should also be some info about check in there . It mat be worth checking out www.baa.com/gatwick , that may not be the correct address , but it will send you to the right one

    happy hols
