Aren’t You Glad You’re Not Flying from London?
Americans should be thankful that they don’t have the tight restrictions that travelers in Britain must face. It’s more than an interview, it’s an interrogation! They also limit carry-ons to just one per person…so you have to check even small bags, adding to the record number of lost bags at Heathrow.
The British government has announced plans to ask all airline passengers — those entering and leaving England — 53 questions as part of an “e-border” system to monitor and track who’s in the country. “Anybody about whom the authorities are dubious can be turned away when they arrive at the airport or station with their baggage,” reports the Daily Mail.
