Or, you can pre-book Fast Track security for £3.50 per person!

Manchester is very busy with having a lot of early departures.

What happened early July is irrelevant to what's going on now. Friends flew from T2 yesterday morning. Massive slow moving queues. Alow an hour extra to your normal routine.

What makes it worse is idiots who still haven't grasped that you cant take bottles of water/coke/shampoo etc in your hand luggage through security. And folk who leave metal on their person in the form of belt buckles, coins etc.

Pre-book on the Manchester Airport website. I assume, you'd still be able to pay for Fast Track at the airport though, albeit more expensive!
