    so I keep seeing the lines in Chicago and NYC are up to 3 hrs long.
    and in the same story they report that for ten years running, the TSA's own internal tests of their screening methods, miss 95% (NINETY FIVE!!) of all weapons . explosives etc that the testers try to get through

    now because of budget fights it appears they are deliberately slowing down the lines to get travelers to call congress to force more money for the TSA in anticipation of summer travels.

    After what happened in Belgium...forcing hundreds of people to pack in tightly in the unsecured areas of airports infuriates me.

    these guys aren't cops or law enforcement, they suck at their only job horribly.
    and now are actually making me and everyone else even less safe.

    I want to keep my shoes and belt on and fire these untrained bums.

    what say you all?

    Last month Austin wasn't bad. But Vegas had a long line and they had the pre-approved TSA line shut down. They also had only one agent checking IDS at first then they brought another on in. Had several agents standing around doing nothing. Typical civil service from the government. With all that it wasn't 3 hours. Probably about 45 minutes

    I got TSA PRE after I missed my flight back in Vegas. More the fact of the car rental and not getting there 2 hours in advance so after TSA Pre it has been easier.

    I was at the airport last week and the Both the TSA Pre and regular lines was way too long. It looked like a 30 to 45 min wait or longer.

    on my 8:35am AA flight out of LaGuardia in NY last week to Turks & Cacios by way of Charlotte, the PreCheck line was not bad but the general line snaked around and the people looked miserable.
