There was also a board indicating which flight was being screened and they were also checking BPs and an interloper was polity told to wait until her flight was called before she would be screened.
i'd read about something like this but mine was done differently. the immigration guy was looking at an image of my suitcase and asked me to confirm his description. he was a bit too vague so then he asked me to look at his monitor and confirm it as my suitcase
