Passing Through

Saturday, August 9, 2003

Just when you thought flight travel couldn’t get any worse… Travelers at Will Rogers Airport now get to stand in line while airport security chooses “random” checked bags to rummage through in public. We lucked out this time, but that doesn’t make it any less annoying.

Between the security checks, airport construction, and all the little things that have always made flying a hassle, it’s just not worth it anymore. If I had the time, I would simply drive everywhere I want to go. European vacations would be tricky, but probably more fun.

One good thing so far — self-service check-in. American Airlines now has kiosks set up here for people with electronic tickets. Convenient, but I don’t know how reliable they are — I watched as one had to be rebooted. :-)
