I traveled through Schiphol Airport twice in June 2012. Since I was there in 2009 they have made Schiphol the most invasive airport from a security imaginable. Not only is a full body scan required but now all passengers (except children) are then subjected to a manual pat down. Are these multi-million Euro full scan machines less effective than the previous scanners requiring an additional fondling of passengers? I noticed that that the children are not placed in full body scanners but rather are walked though the old type scanner and after that are not subject to pat down. No doubt the scanner manufacturers have made billions of Euros selling machines that apparently have made the process more invasive and less effective. I will avoid this airport in future as this "new" technology makes the already ridiculous airport security process completely unacceptable.
