Seriously how does the system work. 

If I drive into the car park and leave my car for the day. I drive in park and pick it up when I return. If I don't register it in on an app surely I can just get in and drive away. No ticket needed, no barriers to stop me.

No Anpr cameras to see me arrive or depart. Is there an army af controllers monitoring arrivals and departures and checking that all cars in the park are registered. If so where is the cost saving. Who issues fines, etc etc. It will take an army of controllers, fine issuers, people hearing appeals etc the whole thing seems to be totally incomprehensible. 

Agreed. How much is it going to cost to police this. The ANPR system is already in use elsewhere on the Island and works well. So typical that they've gone for something different.

The one in St Pauls square seems to break down fairly frequently though.

The NCP's throughout the UK work superbly.

Drive in, car papped. 

When you leave, head to the machine, enter reg, pay what's due.

Is it that hard to put that in?

Fuck me.

You don't fly often then? I think every easyJet, BA, Loganair and Ryanair flight I've been on, I've always heard verbal confirmation of the number of passengers loaded and the handlers checking that it tallys with the crews own headcount of how many people are physically onboard. It's a normal process.

Maybe you won't be satisfied until someone more suitably qualified like maybe @madmanxpilotcomes along and reassures you that it happens?

You seem certain to defend any negativity. That's fine. But your failure to recognise that this is not a good situation is mind boggling.

It was the case with the airlines I've worked for that the dispatcher will verbally confirm to the cabin crew the number of passengers on board, normally after the cabin crew have completed their headcount so as to avoid any confirmation bias. 

Once the dispatcher has left, and prior to starting the safety demonstration, the cabin crew will confirm with the flight deck crew that the doors are closed, and how many passengers there are on board including the number of 'specials' - ie passengers requiring assistance, The flight deck crew cross check this against their paperwork. This is the final chance to pick up any discrepancies.

Ryanair didn’t quite manage this recently. https://simpleflying.com/ryanair-leaves-14-passengers-behind/amp/

How can it be stressful when there are no passengers to worry about?

And there was clearly no stress about airport infrastructure maintenance.

Maybe it was feelings of guilt over remuneration.

The muppet clearly had paid 'leave' , in reality, for the time of his contract.

I imagine when you know your shit at what you do anything is really stressful. 

Grammar and spelling - the difference between knowing your shit and knowing you’re shit.
