| Arrived at airport in plenty of time, it’s great that you can bag drop earlier than normal. Not much information on signs but staff seemed friendly enough. Issued started when going through security. I was traveling with expensive camera equipment in my carry on and had my purchases as we were informed we had to show them at tax credit, didn’t need to. Took laptop out, boots they said to try but a no go, no problem. But my carry on and personal item were pulled aside to pull my cameras out for scanning and swabbing. Unnerving when they are handling cameras and tossing them in a bin for second scanning. Finally made it through first security only to get pulled at second security as a random pull, this time pulled out of line down a long hall to a corner with bunch of other passengers all with flights already boarding, told our flights will wait for us. I did mention to them that my carry on bag really needed to get bin space for, oh he understood but I should pack it in my personal item. This is the second tearing apart of my carry on and pulling cameras out, laptop, ipad, swabbing my stomach, leg above my sock, hands. My plane has started boarding and I’m way in back of line, finally at gate and guess what, security guy forgot to stamp my boarding pass so I have to rush all the way back and find the correct guy and have him stamp my ticket, the gate lady did go with me as I had no idea how to get back there. Mind you I’m in jacket, boots carrying my bags rushing through crowded airport. The guy that made the error then escorted me back to gate, now I’m really back in line, he’s sorry, doesn’t help as now I had no time to hit a bathroom or grab a water. Very frustrating and exhausting. I was trying to be polite and friendly but this was the worst airport experience ever and I have travelled all over the world and to many 3rd world airports, love Iceland but no interest in returning after this experience! With all the travel to Iceland they really need to streamline the boarding. The lines were the longest I have ever seen, everyone boarding at once. I was sweaty, frustrated and had to hunt for bin storage after being early for my flight.
