The chaos at airports in the UK continues today. Passengers have complained of long queues at both Leeds Bradford Airport and Birmingham Airport.
Holidaymakers who were caught up in the chaos took to social media to express their frustration about “mile-long” queues.
Ongoing disruption at airports across the country has been blamed on an industry-wide problem with staffing levels following Covid and a spike in demand for travel.
One Twitter user with the handle @DerrenN said there were “unbelievable queues” at Birmingham Airport just after 5 am. They said: “@bhx_official this is the worst I’ve ever seen at an airport. Unbelievable queues today.”
Another raged: “@bhx_official we can’t get through to your help desk for anything- a queue of 400m long and you’ve done nothing to fix it?”
The queues are the latest chaos hitting airports up and down the country in recent weeks.
Passengers have warned of people bursting into tears, feeling faint amid long delays.
Dennis Hall slammed his check-in at Leeds Bradford last Friday as a “disaster” after he waited more than three hours to board his flight to Greece.
Sarah Dreier said she’d missed her flight to Fuerteventura despite arriving at the airport three hours before; there was total chaos, according to her.
The spokesperson for Birmingham Airport said, “Queues were long but managed and moving this morning as we helped many of the more than 14,000 customers booked to fly out of BHX today.” Asking passengers to arrive at their airport on time is one way they are helping keep queues moving. He continued by saying that it would be helpful if people removed any liquids, gels, pastes, or electrical items from their bags before going through security.
