BA: guilty of a crime against the English language

With my usual smugness yesterday, I waltzed past the queues in Terminal 4 to use the internet check-in. All done and dusted in a minute. Then I went to take my bag to the “Fast bag drop”.

Oh dear. The queue for the “Fast bag drop” had 300 people in it and it took 45 minutes to get to the counter!

Cambridge dictionaries define "fast" as " moving or happening quickly, or able to move or happen quickly”.

“Dawdling” is defined as: “doing something very slowly, taking more time than is necessary”.

So perhaps "dawdling bag drop" is the phrase BA are grappling for.
