As suggested in my last post, I decided to contact Airport Security via email as I had tried ‘phoning but to no avail. No contact given for this, so tried the general feedback form just saying I wanted to contact security.
After a week I got a reply from a “Customer Contact Centre Agent” asking for more information. I attached my consultants letter and gave her the details, with an explanation on how I was trying to keep the liquids to a minimum. After another week I got a reply saying this was acceptable. I think I have now done everything I can in advance. I think it will be difficult to make the same contact with Cyprus for the return journey. I don’t expect problems in arrival and for the return journey I won’t need to take a stock of drinks as I have some at home.
I now will just wait for the flight in October. The moral so far is to plan well ahead and to make as many contacts as possible
