Starship was there as Prince Charles received a guided tour of British Airways’ First Wing. This witness was so exciting that he “forgot to take [his] laptop out of [his] hand luggage, so [Prince Charles] got to witness .. the right-royal swab treatment” at security.
For Prince Charles it was sort of like George H.W. Bush and the somewhat apocryphal supermarket checkout scanner.
At Heathrow Charles was “being told [First Wing security] is the typical airport terminal experience one can expect when one flies commercial” according to the witness.
