2007-09-12 - Ryanair

My visit to Northern Ireland was rather fleeting as the next morning I boarded a flight to London from the City of Derry. This was an interesting experience for a couple of reasons... First of all, I'm not sure if I looked suspicious or if the airport security people were just bored but I got given a full search. They even made me empty my camera bag and turn on my camera and show some photos to prove that it was actually a camera!

It was also my first time flying with Ryanair, who don't always have the best reputation (very much a no-frills airline). I found them to be fine. My timing was lucky because the very next day, the whole airport was shut down due to it being deemed unsafe. It didn't open again for over a week.
