Alice White perked up as those in the queue around her began to whisper. Apparently someone had spotted a check-in attendant.
Although it wasn’t easy, Alice tried to curb her excitement. After all, it wasn’t the first time such a rumour had sprung up.
Thankfully, on this occasion, the whispers proved correct as a member of staff marched purposefully towards the check-in desk. The mood of the queue momentarily lightened.
