    Given the restrictions on what spectators can (or more to the point can’t) take into the Olympic events, the TSA may feel more at home on the gates. “100ml of liquids Sir, just pop it in this bin please”, “is that a Burger King wrapper, sorry but they’re banned”. “Looks like rain again, please hand over your umbrella, it’s too big to take in.”

    Yep, they’d be right at home.

    The one thing that is relatively painless (note the term relatively) at Heathrow is security. Rarely does it take even 10 minutes, the staff are polite and friendly and will join in a limited amount of banter. They don’t shout at people and they have enough space to do the job properly, and enough lanes to cope with people.

    I dread to think what the TSA will make of such badly thought out attitudes towards passengers. This could become a nightmare quite quickly.

    Note that it appears this is only for flights headed to the US, so maybe these can go more smoothly with more staffing. I agree that in most places security is much less of an annoyance than in the US (as in most things Singapore Changi wins hands down for efficient security operations), and I hope others do not “learn” anything from the TSA.
