My approach precisely. Not using a tray also keeps the line moving quickly (and allows me to bypass others who do not take that approach).
OK let me ask others here about the correct etiquette in this situation (and I would like to say I don't like people who jump queues etc so I don't want to be one of these people as I feel that I need to lead by example). So when everyone is in the line and the three people in front of me are messing around with trays etc etc and I'm ready to get x-rayed etc.
Am I allowed to leap-frog the three people before me who in my opinion aren't ready and put my bag in the x-ray machine and walk through the metal detector (without getting dirty looks) ?
