    I never had you pegged as single. I thought you'd be fighting them off with a tulipty stick given your witty repartee!

    Still, goes to show how wrong you can be. At least I got the fact that you're a clueless correct.

    I never said I was single or married, again you are wrong in any event, I rarely take her on business trips. In the good old days I drove twice a week to Germany and back and later weekly to NL until I stayed there for some years.

    Customs used to ask where have I been, once I said Holland you can imagine what goes through their minds

    eGates are manually verified by the people at a desk as you walk through, and a whole team in a back office.

    The eGates look for 2 out of three hits on select variables & verify biometrics amongst other things - and flag these as per Europol & Interpol requirements, but a rolling list of people passing through along along with their API, origin, destination and a whole bunch of other stuff including photo is watched by real people.

    Looks like a reasonable case of "Right of substitution".
