What is this all about? We went to Malaga from Liverpool last month and were on time, having previously checked in on-line, hand luggage only etc. On arrival at the security though there was a huuuuuge long queue - never seen one so long before - and a shorter queue with some machines similar to car park payment machines. Basically for a fee of £2 each (I think) you get to go in the shorter queue. What a swizz this has got to be!! Another money spinner for the airport I think! We had to do it though as otherwise we would have been pushed to board on time. There was probably only one security person on the regular queue in order to get passengers to part with a little extra cash!
Anyone else had to do the same?
