Back in Paderborn

Unfortunately we had to fly back home on Sunday and we arrived on Monday morning around 08:00AM at the great airport in Paderborn. Now I think I could write for ages about wired security checks – I guess I’ll never understand how and when these should happen. There must be some hidden rule when passengers need to be checked between connecting flights. As I mentioned, this time there was no additional security check between our flight from Paderborn to Frankfurt and the flight from Frankfurt to Atlanta. And this was very convenient as we only had 30 minutes between the flights. So I thought that this is now common sense – and to be honest, if you went through the security check once what’s the point of going through it twice?
Anyway, on our flight back we went through three security checks – always the same procedure, always the same checks. First check was of course in Fort Myers. After we landed in Boston we had to leave the secure area and reenter in the internationl terminal. The third check was in Frankfurt directly after landing.
Now, one interesting detail is that the first thing they check is your passport and your flight ticket – this means that only people with a valid flight ticket can go through the security check and I guess they want to ensure that the person the ticket is for, is the one who is taking the plane. But during boarding noone checks this again…somehow strange.
Ok, I don’t want to bore you to death but believe me there were many more strange things involved in these checks…
So we are back again in some very nice weather here, it’s raining and storm – that’s nothing compared to the sunny weather in Florida…sigh
