The idea of having one or two security personnel at each gate checking your passport and ticket - it’s just stupid. Seriously, it is. Just adds up to the crowd.
Security measure, that’s what they call it. That’s become an excuse for every pointless / senseless activity being carried out.
It would be wrong of me to single out Bombay Airport for this. Apparently it’s the case in most airports in India.
now this should be of interest, I walked into the airport after having to stand in a queue for a while and explaining to the morons at the gate that I will be collecting my E – Ticket from the Kuwait Airways counter, inside the airport. The thing is, I was INSIDE the airport – without any REAL security check or passing through a metal detector. This too, I believe might be the case in many airports through out the world.
Question – is it considered a terror threat only AFTER the immigration point? The area prior to the immigration / security check in – is not considered important enough to be made secure?
I have said this before. I don’t mind inconvenience if it helps in getting / providing security. Yes, I will crib about it, but I will see the point of it in a while.
But crap like this, hardly makes any sense.
