    Airline concourse checkpoints have been an constant irritation in air travel since the 70’s, but it beats having your plane blow up in mid-air.

    I guess they should have just borrowed the Cabin from Ted … the RIGHT cabin this time…

    That is why, even with a free pass, I don’t fly commercial anymore.

    I think this is customs, not check in security.

    Those little airports are the worst.

    The best part of a vacation is arriving home afterwards.

    The customs official has time to take only 3 more. And it looks like John and Elly are 4th and 5th in line.

    Didn’t Ellie, on some vacation to a warm place, but I’m thinking Mexico, have her hair beaded?

    I went through Customs in the Bahamas, and it was very fast and efficient. And very 30+ years ago, fwiw.

    I am sure the Barbados tourism industry is not happy to see this comic strip reprinted.

    This strip was done in the days before TSA, so it hqas to be Customs and NOT check in!

    According to Lynn Johnston’s notes, it was the customs and immigration area in Barbados and reflects her opinion of her real-life experience of a trip she took to Barbados.

    We honey mooned in Barbados in 1987. Customs was fast and efficient. Our complaint was that the west side hotel and beach were boring (tiny bathtub wavelets). That was easily fixed by a tour through the rain forest and east side shore.

    That tour was fantastic - hiked the entire way, donkey laden with barrels of rum punch, dancing girls, grilled flying fish served on banana leaves, bathing in swimming pool sized rocky tide pools with huge waves crashing against the outer rocks, eating coconuts cut fresh from the tree (by a native climber). The tour guide got roaring drunk on the rum punch, but was even more fun in that state (not sure it was good for his family life, however).

    I remember a song by Jimmy Buffet, it wasn’t Barbados he went to, but Jamaica. And, as he was flying in, they started shooting at him. Of course, he made a song about it. Funny! This strip doesn’t look like they are having fun, yet.
