“Amid reports of long security lines over the weekend, the U.S. Transportation Security Administration said it screened passengers expeditiously despite the ongoing government shutdown. The TSA called Sunday a “historically busy day due to holiday travel” but said 99.8 percent of passengers waited less than 30 minutes and 90.1 percent waited less than 15 minutes.
Precheck lane waits averaged less than five minutes, according to the TSA. Last week, CNN reported that hundreds of TSA officers, whose pay is withheld while the shutdown persists, were calling in sick from “at least four major airports.” Long lines were reported at LaGuardia Airport in New York City on Sunday. Forbes reported longer than usual lines in Seattle on Sunday and in Salt Lake City on Monday morning.”
