Anyone flown early morning recently? Have the nightmare queues gone away?

I flew back in July and had a 1000 flight. Check in/bag drop took less than 10 mins and security took about 10-15 mins. Very easy and quick the only thing that held security up was people not taking their liquids out of their bag or the electronics. I would definitely use them as an airport again

I wrote a long message which disappeared so I would summarise. Check in we didn't have to queue and then for security we queued about 40 minutes. We went to the security one that's up the stairs which was a shorter queue than the other one. This was for a 10am flight in August!

Traveled end of August. Bag drop 10 minutes, security was 20 minutes. We arrived 8:00 am

I flew out of there two weekends ago early on a Sunday morning — security queues were extremely long. I’d arrived 2.5 hours before my flight (just because I woke up early and thought I might as well) even though I’d checked in online and had no bag, but my flight was boarding by the time I got to the gate. Having said that, DH flew out in the evening of the same day and had no such issues.
