    Feeling & fearing FAA furloughs


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     omekongo arrived at Baltimore’s BWI airport at 6:30 this morning and was surprised to see a massive line on a weekday. 'I was shocked but on the radio and TV last night and even on my way to the airport this morning, all the talk was either about Boston or these FAA furloughs. It's like it was spoken into existence!' said the motivational speaker and diversity consultant. 'I have traveled at this time before and I've only seen lines like this and this early for vacation times like Easter, thanksgiving, etc.'

    Despite the long line, he said it only took him 20 minutes to clear security, which is consistent with this morning’s wait times, according to the TSA.

    Got to BWI (Baltimore) 2 hours early for my flight. Usually I do an hour but everyone is talking about delays so I came early. I wasn't expecting to see lines this long at 6:30 AM on a Thursday! Many people seem on edge fearing delays. To their credit though, the TSA staff are moving quite efficiently!
