'Never Seen This in My Life': Passengers Stand in Long Line at Amsterdam Airport

Passenger woes continued at Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam on Monday, July 11, as long lines for check-in counters and security followed weekend disruption.

Footage posted by Miguel Otero shows a long line of passengers.

The airport said it was working on a Summer Action Plan to increase recruitment after limiting traveler numbers in June. The airport said the daily maximum number of travelers it would accept for August would be 73,000, an increase on the July figure but still about 1,000 fewer than airlines and travel organisations had hoped.
