TSA Increased Procedures At Fort Lauderdale Airport
(Fort Lauderdale, FL) -- TSA is increasing its passenger scrutiny at the Fort Lauderdale airport. The Transportation Security Administration is officially rolling out a new program ahead of Memorial Day weekend at ten airports that will require passengers to remove more items at passenger screening checkpoints. Instead of just having to remove shoes and laptops, passengers will now be required to have electronic devices larger than a cell phone screened separately. The new guideline also includes any food or books. Will this ever stop? They should be paying us for the inconvenience and aggravation of flying.
