Is this only affecting Terminal 4 (Obviously from the article T4 is affected) or are Terminals 2 and 3 also affected? If only T4 then Southwest gets hurt the most since they have the largest share of O and D traffic. AA is hurt to a lesser extent because much of their PHX traffic is connecting.

I doubt anyone is moving bags to other airports. Pretty dumb propersistion.

The pictures I've seen are truly a mess. I'm not sure I've ever seen TSA have such a catastrophic meltdown like this. It certainly isn't helping their public relations amid all of the other problems going on across the country with understaffing and horrendous checkpoint wait times. This will only further fuel the argument to privatize airport security again.

Is this something the airlines can sue TSA to recoup the costs?
|Quoting tcfc424 (Reply 16):|
The creation of the TSA was a knee-jerk reaction. In some airports, they have proven truly amazing. In others, a private contractor could easily surpass their capabilities. By creating the TSA, the government quelled (some---not Anetters) fears of the dangers of flying, and they created jobs in the aviation/transportation industry at a time when it was needed most. Now, there is no reason, with the proper oversight (the key lacking element on 9/11) that private security companies could not once again take over airport security. In some places, I think they have. The key is oversight...the lowest bidder is going to need to have eyes on them. Guaranteed their employees are not getting medical/dental/health and retirement benefits.
Of course, it doesn't sound like this has anything to do with the actual TSA agents...more or less its a tech glitch.
