    Default Privium at AMS - Anyone else use it?

    Got my card today and it really is the dogs danglies.

    Must save me at least 30mins which are usually the most torturous (sp?) of the trip.

    i.e.

    security: Do you have anything metal on your person?
    numpty: no
    security: mobile phone?
    numpty: Err, yes
    security: keys?
    numpty: Err, ok
    security: watch?
    numpty: umm, yes
    security: belt?
    numpty: Err, yes

    Every time

    I go through AMS every week (have been for about 2 months) passport queue can be a bit of a hassle and have seen the Privium thing and was thinking about joining...
    What annoys me about the passport queue is how the "all passports" queue quite often moves faster than the EU passports queue, i'm sure its down to all the ex - eastern bloc countries that have joined

    But, does it speed up security checks too? these are always at the gate whenever I fly and there is no apparent special queue for Privium so i just wait till the last minute then go through when there's no queue, and then try and board at the last minute as well.

    When you go thru the privium line at passport control you get to go through the crew's security check - much much faster and polite too.

    Still have to queue with the muppets at the gate though.

    D6 by any chance?
