Expect Massive Lines at TSA Security This Summer
If you don’t want to wind up looking like this guy, be forewarned: the travel industry, airlines, airports, and federal officials are all warning passengers about the great likelihood of “epic” lines backing up at TSA security stations this summer in our nation’s airports.
Why? Fewer screeners, tighter budgets, newer procedures at checkpoints, and an expected record number of travelers this summer.
In fact, a recent NY Times article warns: Catching a Flight? Budget Hours, Not Minutes, for Security.
Just take a peek at a recent #hatethewait tweet I found on Twitter:

Even some television stations are recommending that their viewers take the TSA to task for the long airport security lines.

A week before you head out to the airport, do a little homework on social media to determine what you might be facing in the way of lines at the TSA security stations. How horrible would it be to miss your dream vacation because you unexpectedly spent hours in line at the airport. Horrible. Right?
