To be fair, different airports have different rules. You have to strip almost naked to cover all the bases, some need shoes off, some don’t; some need metal removed; some dont; ditto electricals out of bag (with guidance on what is ‘electrical’ differing between security staff at the same airport at times). It seems to depend on the technology they have and National/ local policy.It's painful. Get to the front of the queue, then only start taking their belt off, getting electricals out of their bags etc. They should be sent to a different queue if they don't have everything ready to go in a box immediately
A great idea for all airports would be signage in the queue preparing travellers for what is needed.
