Little Rock Airport screening woes

Posted By on Wed, May 23, 2012 at 6:53 AM


A seasoned traveler who almost missed a plane sends a photo of what he encountered at 6 a.m. this morning at Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport. As you know, this line bends back on itself multiple times once it reaches the screening area.

I don't care what anyone else says. The situation is far worse since the screening area expanded. The problem is the new scanners, with the longer transit time and the increased number of false positives..

The picture above shows what our traveler saw ahead of him and, below, others worse off than he.

UPDATE: My traveler reports that a 5:35 a.m. line arrival got him on a plane at 6:26 a.m. But not before a lot of anxiety. He reports that people were cutting in line and arguments were breaking out and that one airline held boarding open past the normal time because of the security delay.
