Well- having just flown from CA to Boston, to London and back, I really didn't think it was all that bad. We checked in 2 hours early for the international flights, but it only took an hour. There were random secondary security checks, but I thought that was a good idea myself. Everything kept moving. They also realize that you can't kill someone with a nail file, so those and nail clippers are permitted in carry-on baggage again. It was interesting in London and Edinburgh train stations though- No trash bins. This is due to security and the risk of bomb threats. Of note, the stations were VERY clean. No loose trash in sight (I doubt that this would be true in the US). Anyway- my vacation was fabulous. Scotland and simply stunning! If I were independently wealthy, I'd move tomorrow to one of the Hebrides islands off the west coast of Scotland.

doubt it..... Try flying, it is a nightmare from some cities. I am sure it needed.... but some of these airports are a bit much.

My boss arrived 2 hours and 20 minutes early for a family trip.... they
didn't make the plane... security was so strick, it took forever, and
...........his family got out on the next plane a few hours later.
Un-real! (he told me to cancel all of the scheduled conventions if we
can't drive... he is not going)
