    Heading off tomorrow morning. I know its variable, but is T2 particularly long queue-wise for EU flights?

    Allow at least 90 but ideally about 2 hours.

    For a given terminal, your destination has no effect on queuing time.

    At that time of the morning, all of the security lanes will be open and a significant number of passengers will be business folk who know what not to carry on their person through the body scanner and they know the rule about liquids so my experience is that the lines move very quickly and you won't have a problem. Get to the terminal an hour before your departure time and you'll be fine - probably have time for a coffee after security.

    for a 6AM departure it is JUST prior to peak so if you roll through at 0430 you should breeze through ... even 20-30 minutes later and a circus descends.

    T2 mans all their lanes , T1 does not. nobody here knows why
