Leaving on a Jet Plane

Is it me, or does Atlanta airport need more security checkpoints? Iíve just returned from a trip including Orlando, Miami, Barbados, and Port of Spain terminals which all boast more than two security areas. Although in Miami more people were passing through, the security was always moving along swiftly.

Have you ever traveled to Atlanta airport on a Monday morning for a work flight? About thirty minutes to find parking, then an hour just to pass through the security gates is the usual. However, I believe Atlanta airport has some of the best airport shopping around compared to other US airports. I canít determine if the hold-up in Atlanta is because they only have two security areas or the workers are s-l-o-w.

    Although they certainly could improve operations, the long lines is probably due to fact that Atlanta is not only the US’s, but the world’s busiest airport. I think we beat O’Hare by 5 million passengers/ year.

    It’s not just you. Let’s talk quality in addition to quantity, shall we?

    I’ve made it in and out of said air Puerto several times now with my triple action defense spray tucked safely in my handbag with nary a question.
