Last week I got to the airport a little less than an hour before my flight left. This is pretty normal for me—but was about the only normal thing about the airport. I completely forgot that Spring Break is starting soon, and the lines were looooooong. I am lucky I have status and could go through the elite security line because the regular security line stretched halfway down the airport. And it’s not just the fact that there are a ton of people, it’s that so many of them travel very infrequently and don’t move as quickly as maybe we would like.
So just a friendly reminder—get to the airport a little earlier than normal, and if you don’t have status get there even earlier.
