There's an interesting graphic at the below website for wait times at US airports, displaying percentage of waits over 10 minutes, average wait, and maximum waiting time. You can click on each airport and see the breakdown by checkpoints within that airport. The airports are ranked by domestic passengers whose trips originated at that airport and not including aircraft with less than 60 seats.

http://www.usatoday.com/travel/graphics/TSAdelays/flash.htm

The figures were compiled from June 1, 2004 thru May 16, 2005 by the TSA.

Locally, the figures confirm that FLL (ranked #13 in domestic pax traffic) had shorter wait times than MIA (ranked #34 in domestic pax traffic). Of course, like gas mileage, your wait times will vary according to when you fly. Here's the results:

FLL - Waits over 10 mins 12.7%, avg wait 4.8, max wait 100 mins
MIA - Waits over 10 mins 14.2%, avg wait 5.6, max wait 101 mins

Concourse B at FLL (serving Southwest, America West, Frontier, and others) was second lowest in wait times at FLL with only 8.9% waits over 10 minutes, an average wait of 4.5 minutes, and max wait time of 48 minutes.

Could have been any number of reasons, sometimes I have waited on line longer to get checked in for a flight than to go through security,....

By the way, most of that max wait probably happens on Saturday when those ships dump off at Port Everglades. That is defenitely the worst day to non-rev out of FLL

For CAK being so vocal about their short wait times compared to CLE, they're actually about the same. Alittle less average wait but alittle more maximum wait time... pretty much evens out. When I flew from CAK it took me longer than CLE thanks to only 1 metal detector at CAK.
