Birmingham airport is fantastic when you wear a flowered lanyard. Only issue was having a teddy taken off my son when going through the security phase, but a lady saw my son going into meltdown, got his teddy fast tracked through so all went well. Lovely to be fast tracked so no waiting in long queues which increase anxiety
