Arrived at Belfast Int. airport Easyjet check-in. Stood in queue for over 30mins. Only one girl on check-in desk. Off-loaded suitcases and went straight to security check with intentions of eating/ shopping once through. One item of hand luggage was targeted for searching items were scrutinised in detail. In total well over 10 mins must have passed from opening of this single bag to leaving security. By this stage we all had to make a dash for the departure lounge as boarding was commencing. As yet no drinks or food for the kids. And usual story with Belfast Int - passengers are despatched from the seating bay into the stairwell where they have to remain standing before being released (about 10+ mins). In past flights we've had to stand for even longer periods in these conditions. Total time to get through airport with no breaks: over 70 mins. It would seem many passengers are opting to make the short trip down to Dublin.
