I have the same problem in Adelaide as well, always told to get my IPad out it shouldn’t be in my luggage, told them I don’t have this issue anywhere else, and I was told the other airports weren’t doing there job properly, had a VA flight Attendant behind me and she said they Had the worst record in Oz for trying to upset people, she got pulled aside for a scan after that!
Had to laugh at your quote as I had a similar experience once. Already grumpy from 4am wake up, got to the airport only to face the usual security and queuing mayhem and to top it off, my flight was already on final call by the time I managed to get through only to be stopped for the dreaded swap. The security took his time to wait for 2 more victims and did the bulk check the slowest way possible. At the end of the saga, I couldn’t hold back anymore and cheekily said that it was obvious to me then why the instant feedback stand disappeared not long after it appeared. I ran off before the security could say anything. :D

Seems to have spread to Townsville now, first time I have been pulled up for a mobile phone inside my carry-on bag. Have been flying in an out of there for years. Ridiculous.

This is the thing that infuriates me with the swabbing. I went through a phase where I only had to look at an airport to get swabbed. And yet they insist every time that it's random!
Not even approaching random.

Three swabs in one day (3 outa 3 flights), then no swabs for months.

... I stored a bag for a few hours at St Pancras station in London a few years ago. It was a long umbrella. I was called into a special room to explain to them what the long thing that looked like a rifle ...
Sounds a bit 007. Might be a Brit thing.

For those who fly out of ADL the iPad and umbrella blitz seems to be back on the cards. This evening there were 4 groups plus myself all discussing and waiting for the second bag screen why is ADL so difficult. The I remembered there was a post late last week indicated that ADL took pole position for the worst airport in AU.

I thought it was in the top 10 world wide?

I got sent a link and maybe misread. There is no way on this God given Earth ADL could ever be considered in the worlds top 10 and I live in ADL.
Oh I totally agree but think it earned the rating due to proximity to CBD, restaurants 😁, (although the Icon shop is probably pretty cool) , cost of parking and timeliness. Security didn’t rate.
