    Thanks for the replies, I'm just a bit wary because I don't want to be held up and embarassed in public lol



    Is it the same at Gatwork? Thanks for your reply.
    It's not really likely to hold you up for longer than a minute, and it's not embarrassing. It's someone telling you to stick your arms out, spending about 10 seconds frisking you, then asking you to put your shoes through another scanner, so you just put them through, pick up your stuff from the first machine then go put your shoes on.

    Really really really not a big deal, and not really a reason to worry about your footwear.

    does it matter? if they check it they check it. As long as you're not carrying small explosives/weapons in your rubber soles then what's there to worry

    He wasn't of Asian ethnicity though.
    No he wasn't. But, the other poster asked if there were any specifically white terrorists... but I get what your aiming at.

    Well you responded to Post#14 (Higgys comment) about white terrorists. That's why I highlighted he was not 100% white pork. That is all.

    I'm sorry, I don't believe my post read "There have been no white terrorists."

    Good one.

    The shoes generally just go through the x-ray machine with the bags etc.
    Hes not half wrong you know, even if he was joking. I've seen people who had the typical look taken aside many a time. Shocking, and it shouldn't happen, but it does.

    They'll only ask you to take your shoes off if you buzz, usually. I remember flying by myself and she made me take my shoes off and she put them through the scan thingy at the opposite end of the airport :| So I had to walk round, by myself, in no shoes. What an idiot.
