summer travel – let the delays begin!

dulles warning: arrive at least 2 hours prior to departure for domestic flights! i am the last person to say you need to arrive for a flight early, but it’s a nightmare and it’s only going to get worse over the summer…

as summer’s hurricane weather begins to take its toll in the northeast, air travel is predicted to follow suit.


in this area, dulles airport got a jump start as the past few weeks have shown the security lines coming to screeching halt. it took me almost 90 minutes to get through security for a domestic flight. when i finally deboarded the people mover, gate attendees throughout the terminal were calling out destinations to see if ppl were stuck in line could still make their flight. the crew decided to delay my flight for 30 minutes because so many people were still stuck in the security lines. i don’t think they can keep make accommodations like that all the time.

i hate to say it’s just dulles, but i flew both out of chicago o’hare and los angeles this week…took less than 10 minutes to get through the line…doo do doo do doo…what’s wrong w/ this picture?
