Is the TSA still horribly bad at the airport??



Going to Vegas in a week and a half and haven't been on a plane in 4 years. If it is still terrible, should I go through the pat down line or the X-Ray, see you naked line?

TSA is fine. They are using the x-ray machine pretty much every time I use BTR. You could probably ask for the pat down if you prefer it, though.

Christ...

People make such a big deal about the security check-point (not you, people in general)...

It's fine.

Just go through the scanner and be done with it.

I'm going out of NOLA. I hear the lines are horrific in one and not the other. Just didn't know which was which and how bad either of them are.

They don't really give you the option where I've been. They direct everyone through the metal detector and on their way and every couple of people they send into the full body scanner. It moves as slowly as it has for years, no better and no worse.

It's really not that bad if you follow instructions and empty your pockets, take off shoes and belt, etc. I haven't had a problem in almost 10 years.

I've flown a few times the past couple years and I agree that it is relatively painless. I also have never been body scanned. This is most likely because the NOLA airport doesn't give a shite.

My GF gets scanned every time she goes. I think they just want to see her sorta naked.

ETA: I also always fly early in the morning cause I'm not a lazy bastard.

My experience is not typical to most people. I always get stopped because I look arabic (at least that's why i think i get stopped)

So not everyone goes through the naked scanner/ball grabbing process?

My buddy's middle name is "Mohammed."

Back before he had kids, he'd congratulate the agent who would pulled him out of line and say "get the ones behind me that look like me too."

I've flown a about a dozen times since 2009 and never been groped or X rayed anywhere

flying out later in the day makes you lazy?

I guess I should go back to the 6:30 am flight with everybody else. Going through the BTR TSA line at 10 am when hardly anybody is there certainly means I'm lazy.

It's fine. Just make sure you keep up with removing your stuff from the conveyor belt before it piles up at the end. And don't forget anything.

No, I just find your remarks rather idiotic.
