Big Joke orders airport upgrade: Premium Lane will henceforth be known as "Fast Track"

Recommended Posts

Who qualify s for the Fast Track Lane and how do they know that they qualify ?

Business class, First Class, some top levels of frequent flyer programs (such as Bangkok Airways Flyerbonus Premier), and from what I hear, all 70 yrs/old and over flyers, no matter which class, airline or flyer program. Most people already know they qualify, you get a card at check in, but for those over 70, I suggest just asking when checking in for flight.

He's renamed the "Premium Lane" at an airport to be "Fast Track". And you clicked on an article about it.  That's invading your life??  Every hour of it??

 

Would you like to be a little more melodramatic?

The allowance of non premium pax defeats the purpose. Keep the non premium pax infirm, elderly, pregnant, aged with the regular pax, but do what other countries do and that is to have a quick processing line.

 

The premium line from BKK has 1-2 security scanning lines and that's a bottleneck when someone in a wheelchair passes through. It's a good 5 minute wait while they do the processing. The regular  line has multiple  security scanners so the  bottleneck is addressed.  In any case, most 70 year olds are as fit as 50 year old, so I don't understand why they need the complimentary fast track.

What about the others outside of the 'most 70 year olds?'

The one thing that I don't understand is why do they have to check every page in your passport. Stick it in the reader and it's all there on the screen.

He also invented a "fast track " out for all the bad guys.  Very efficient. No waiting time.

Quite a few chinese obviously mis-translate the sign for the over 70's lane.

Being over 70 I have my own fast-track lane.  On my last visit I was through Immigration within 10 minutes of leaving the taxi.

I always use over 70 or business class, just pick the shortest of the two but you sometimes get some obviously well under 70 trying to use it.

Most 70yr olds are as fit as 50yr olds.most 70yr old have worked a hard life before the idea of health and safety idea at work was even born.i was a bricklayer and im 56yrs old but I can tell you now I don't feel like a 36yr old.out of curiosity i looked up the average age a male lives for and it came up with 68.4 yrs.so reaching 70yrs is lucky in my book but in your book people of 90 are as fit as a 70yr old and then be able to qualify for fast track.no two people age the same believe it or not.obviously you fast track and don't like the thought of 70yr olds having complimentary fast track.

I'm pretty sure he wouldn't want preferential treatment because of his status.
