I've also posted this question on the London forum, but maybe this is a better place to post it.
I'm interested in finding out how long it usually takes to get through security and passport control (I'm not an EU citizen) at Luton airport.
I realise it probably varies greatly according to time and day. My flight is with Wizz Air on a Friday at 5.15 pm.
I'm due to arrive at the airport shortly before 4 pm, on the shuttle bus via a train from St Pancras (and ultimately from York), and the gate apparently closes at 4.45 pm. I'm already checked in and will have only cabin baggage. But I've heard that Luton airport is...not the best in England.
Will I likely make the flight?
Please no schoolmarmish lectures telling me I should have left myself more time (I'm not accusing anybody; it's just that they're fairly common on other forums).
Any sensible replies much appreciated.
