Are the rumors correct that there is no "opting out" in the UK?
However, the Eurostar (chunnel train) gives you a nice ride to Paris where you can fly out of wonderful CDG.
Which airline are you thinking of flying? I've flown UA twice out of LHR, and if you've got status, or can use a security lane on the right side, you won't be near the NoS. Both times, it was roped off. I think it may be similar to Canada, etc, where they got it to please the US, but use it very little.
It is a little off topic but when I go to the UK I now depart via AMS. So no NoS. The flight to AMS is much cheaper than the British airport departure taxes. There is an NoS in AMS which I have not yet declined. Only for the US----
As a regular flyer on BA I pass through LHR T5 often and have never seen the scanner in use. Nor have I been scanned in any other country outside of the US.
Will report Monday - LHR T5 to MSP - of course if I wanted to stay in London a wee bit longer, I might try to opt-out...
