The leftmost line usually goes fastest in my experience
I tend to notice it is "whichever line I am not in" - the leftmost line also gets held up with crew and passengers in wheelchairs/mobility issues. I think the line just to the right of the leftmost lane gets processed by the most customs officers but is still a "Australians/New Zealander passport" line so doesn't get sent to the x-ray machines as often either.The leftmost line usually goes fastest in my experience
Currently I see it as no worse than Australia.
It's substantially worse in NZ than in Australia. At least here when you get an express pass you can use it at quarantine. Unlike in New Zealand where you have to line up with the masses. Implementing an express lane would be a big step forward.
