    Even if your flight does not hand out the customs form, be sure to fill one out before entering the line.

    Not fit for purpose. Longer queues than LAX or JFK

    ePassport kiosks are great, but not enough of them when a couple of flights land together. Hopefully they'll open more up soon...

    Standard airport security, no smiles from staff.

    If you're connecting from a UK domestic flight on a UK passport you still have to go through passport control! Don't waste time looking for the sensible alternative - there isn't one!

    Typical UK Security speed. Slow as hell. I'm wondering why this is accepted...

    Left side: UK/EU passports, including Switzerland. Right side: Everyone else.

    Leave your firearms at home or they might confiscate them:-)

    Make sure if you are carrying a harmonica that you are playing it as you pass through. Not only does it show the X-ray folk it's harmless, it lightens the mood of an otherwise boring queue.

    If you are Norwegian, don't bother going to "Rest of the World" queue. You can use "Arrivals from EU".

    This queue gets worse and worse. Not a good sign for the olympics.

    Don't bother with the egates. At least 60% failure rate. The Yanks get through faster than EU people. Epic fail

    Prepare to queue at immigration control! It's madness.

    Perhaps if the electronic entry devices are this unreliable remove them and fine the vendors.
