Does anybody know what caused the extra, erxtra long security lines @ IAD
on yesterday(Sept. 2, 2005) Since 9-11 I have never ever seen such a long,line anywhere, including IAD
. I arrived @IAD
at 3pm ,with only carry on luggage, and had checked in online for a 5:40PM flight. I madce it to my gate just as the flight was starting to board---a wait of about 2 hours.
I talked to a number of people and we all agreed it was awful, somtimes even chaotic. It was also the worst they had ever seen since 9-11 and it took them closed to 2 hours to clear security.My flight was even held for 30 minutes as there were so many caught in the never ending line.
Does anybody know what is gpoing on there, is this a sign of things to come at IAD
? I am not so sure it was all due to being a 3 day weekend at all. I have flown from IAD
every Christmas and Thanksgiving since 9-11 and nothing remotely compares to what we endured yesterday.
