I spoke with several friends of mine who are still working for various airlines late yesterday. Based on those conversations, I believe that security wait times improved markedly as the day wore on yesterday, and news reports this morning indicate things have improved today as well.

Just arrive as early as possible, check those pesky liquids (or leave them at home), and bring that patience hat with you, and you should be fine.

I think I’ll fly somewhere just to thumb my nose at the terrorists! And I may even check a bag.
