Security line waits getting longer and longer, another thing to look forward to this summer traveling season.

600 passengers miss flights in 1 day in Charlotte

Security lines at airports are getting longer much longer and wait times could reach epidemic levels when air travel peaks this summer, according to airlines, airports and federal officials. Charlotte Douglas International Airport has been cited as a prime example of the problem.

A combination of factors fewer Transportation Security Administration screeners, tighter budgets, new checkpoint procedures and growing numbers of passengers is already creating a mess at airports around the country.

While federal security officials say they are hiring and training hundreds of additional screening officers, matters are not expected to improve anytime soon.

Its those BS scanner machines that take so much time and the TSA making it mandatory for just about everyone to go through them. In ATL when the line is backing up and the TSA is using the scanner AND the metal detectors, the line goes pretty quick, but when its the scanners only, the lines take for ever.
