True, there's not much one can do to avoid that. Luton has to have the most manic and bad tempered baggage security area I've come across. Horrible staff, crowded, and it's almost as if they spray high stress pheremones in the air.

I actually got shouted at (at length) by one of the security staff for walking through the scanner just as he turned his head to talk to a colleague.
NIFTY!

oh this sounds just like EWR/newark (sh!thole). add a dirty, falling apart, totally dysfunctional and customer unfriendly terminal building, and you have newark!

i have only ever been to luton once. i flew easyjet from luton to CDG.

I can get to LTN quite cheaply from ABZ on EasyJet.

But why?

Unless to get a cheap flight somewhere else - and the one time we did that (to Geneva), it were 'orrible, as I noted in previous post.

Given budget airline delays and infrequency, you generally need to leave 3-5 hours between flights.

easyJet page for LTN still says " You can drop your bags for any flight at any of our desks from 2 hours before the departure time." Boo.

EDI is drop your bag any time.

The shittiest one in the world has to be the only one I’ve visited, in Banda Aceh. Besides slow WiFi, they had stale wafer cookies and the Islamic version of Tang. It also stunk of stale cigarette smoke.

The ones in the US are filled with jerks talking loudly into their cell phone headsets.

In Tokyo, they're worth paying for.
That's the kind of bold flavor they enjoy in Albuquerque!
