Holiday Transport

I’ve made it to sunny (somewhat) Florida to spend the week with my parents, and I thought I’d let you know that at 5:30am on a Tuesday morning, DCA was relatively crowded…

I flew AirTran, which goes out of the “old” terminal, and they’ve taken the huge clunky luggage security machine out of the ticketing area to make more room – luggage screening has returned to the back rooms. This will really make a difference as this week progresses and the insanity begins, as space is at a premium in that area in the old terminal. Security moved quickly – there are three screening areas so that should help as well, and the agents seemed very on top of getting everyone through efficiently.

All in all I, though I vastly prefer leaving from the “new” terminal, if you have to leave from the old it seems they are really making an effort to minimize the glut. We’ll see. Good luck traveling everyone!!
