    Apparently both heathrow and manchester now have these. At Manchester im reading that there are no longer economy check in desks, everyone must either check in online or via one of these new screens at the airport. You then go to the bag drop areas.

    A friend who went out late last week said manchester was full of people walking back and forth looking for the checkin desks and getting in the bag drop queue without having used the screens, they all got told to go away and use the screens before joining the queue

    looks like quite a big change

    I'd read about this too. I'm going to try the online check in the day before if it's working.

    definitely the best way IMHO since there's bound to be queues for those screens at the airport

    Great....you can pretty please let me know if you still have to get a bus to the plane. We've always gone from Gatwick in the past.
