European airports come to a standstill with long queues, not enough staff


The lines at the airport are long and lost luggage piles up. It will be a chaotic summer for travelers in Europe.

Liz Morgan arrived at Schiphol Airport 4 1/2 hours before her flight to Athens, where she found the security queue winding out of the terminal and squirming in a large tent along a road before re-entering the main building.

“There are elderly people in line, there are children, babies. No water, nothing. No signage, no one to help, no toilets,” said Ms Morgan, who is from Australia and had tried to save time on Monday by checking in online and taking only hand luggage.
