Should some airport security checks be scrapped?

07:37 UK time, Wednesday, 27 October 2010

The chairman of British Airways has said some airport security checks are "completely redundant" and should be scrapped. Do you agree?

Martin Broughton said the UK should stop "kowtowing" to US security demands and called for practices such as forcing passengers to take off their shoes to be abandoned.

He also criticised the US for imposing checks on US-bound flights but not on its own domestic services.

Do you think some airport security checks are excessive? Or do you think the current level of security is necessary? What are your experiences of airport security?
