C’mon British Airways, what good are these measures really going to do, other than create feelings of huge paranoia and fear in your passengers?
Why will you need to scan faces twice? Do you think people are coming through with Mission Impossible style rubber face masks and false fingerprints, escaping detection by eagle eyed security staff (who’re otherwise occupied trying to figure out if over 100ml of baby milk is allowable, and confiscating highly dangerous nail clippers in case they’re used on the flight to threaten anyone with a nasty nip), then ripping them off as soon as they think they’re clear of security?
Will it really be a case of “your face doesn’t fit here mate”?
And would it not have been far simpler to just keep international and domestic lounges separate?
Or would that mean you’d have no good excuse for introducing yet more invasive tracking of individuals in the name of ‘security’?
