Thousands of passengers were left queuing for hours at Barcelona's El Prat airport, Friday, as security staff checking carry-on luggage went on strike on one of the busiest holiday weekends of the year. Peter from the Netherlands was one of the affected passengers, saying that he had missed his flight and is now almost out of options. “Now I have to see if I take the children with the car or I... Еще don’t know, or they take us, I don’t know. They waited for two hours here in the lane,” he said. The chaos is caused by the staff of security company Eulen’s decision to go on strike. The workforce have planned a series of mini hour-long strikes starting from Friday, and on Wednesday voted for an indefinite strike beginning on August 14 or 15. Airlines have asked passengers to arrive at airports three hours before departure instead of the usual two.
