Dear Sir,
Here is seen at 00.20 morning of 1 June at Palma Airport. My son sent me it as I waited outside for him and his girlfriend. Already badly delayed by weather in S England they are now enduring the traditional Majorcan welcome of the Passport queue.

Heaven help us on this island when the full tourist season of high summer arrives.

Just do the same to the Spanish when they come to the U.K. make them wait in line until all U.K. passport holders are through . Which could be some time since we give every kn....b in the world who wants to come here one ,

Is this their way of encouraging winter tourism? Delay you in the summer to make you come in the winter when nothings open. As someone who used to go to Soller about 5 times a year I won’t go through this anymore.

No plan on how they installed the machines. No “Just In Time” management thinking at all.

All the time that is wasted with no one using the machine as you work up to it, especially the last four.

Conferences will not want to come and use the Palacio de Congress if many of their delegates are arriving from a UK airport.

Not looking froward to my 8 flights back and forth this summer. Also I am probably counted as a tourist on your statistics but I am a resident !!!

It's the new passport machines that don't work properly nor are there enough of them or police,it's not just Majorca,it was exactly the same in Alicante in November and Tenerife South in December and when we leave the EU and can no longer use the EU passport holders queue,it will get even worse.

An island that generates its employment and beating heart from tourism - needs to get the “entry” and “exit” point right.

These create prominent memories of how your holiday was !!! Would you return again ?

From the picture shown , the Passport Control Problem has NOT been resolved . WHY are the British Tourists being treated in this disgraceful incompetent manner ?. It appears to be exactly the same as last seasons complete mess. Perhaps, flying via Germany, may be an option, where when you arrive, you walk straight into the Island, and there are no restrictive passport queues to aggravate the start of your visit.
