Other things to be worried about in addition to the baggage retrieval system.

Those crowded health check lines were one of the catalysts in spreading the virus early on in the U.S.

If you didn't have COVID before you got in the queue, it's likely you'll catch it while you're in it.

I f'ing hate Heathrow. Having to go through security after passport control in the international terminal when you're not even leaving the god damned airport is stupid when Heathrow is known and built as an international hub with it's own dedicated international arrival/departure building!

God only knows what it's like now after Brexit. Do I have to go through UK passport control and then EU passport control if I fly to the continent? No thanks. I'll pick a different stopover without this garbage like Iceland or Zurich.

Agree. And icelandic air had a deal for a while that during the booking phase you could add a stopover in iceland for a few days at no charge

Heathrow says airport queues are becoming 'untenable'

Why, are they ranting about Boris Johnson breaking up a paedophile ring out of a pizza shop?

What health check lines? Where did they exist in america? Real question. I never experienced one since March 1 '20 thru Feb 21. ( Within US borders)  flights National or international. I nor my immigrant spouse.

Other countries, yes.
