According to the airport operators association, long queues at UK border control ‘deter tourists’.
As does the weather, the food, the people. Honestly it’s a mystery why anybody comes here at all.
If they think queues at the airport are bad then they’re going to hate Alton Towers.
One thing this report clearly ignores is the queue fetishists. People who travel to the spiritual home of queuing to see how it’s done properly.
These people bring thousands of pounds in tourism to the UK. Eventually.
