Thanks to Commissioner Farnan for reporting this morning:

“Good morning from DCA! Dunkin’ Donuts line longer than TSA. If you have pre-check, you’re golden. If you don’t, you’re still looking at max 30 min security line. Safe travels!!!”


G writes us: “DCA line this Morning, out the door for terminal A. if you have a flight coming up soon, come very early.”

On Wednesday we got a DCA PSA about long security lines at the airport. Update: They’re apparently getting longer. So keep in mind as we get closer to Thanksgiving travel (we did a poll showing almost 60% of respondents would be traveling this year, obviously not all by air but still.)

Martha writes us earlier this morning: “Advice to holiday revelers, traveling through DCA: allow yourself extra time. There’s quite a bit of construction here and the security lines are longer than I thought they’d be at this early hour! Pre-check was faster – but still more people than I thought would be in line at 5:30 a.m.!”

Incidentally – are many folks headed out of town this year? If so, when are you leaving? Coming back? Safe travels to all who are!

A joint service aerial review (flyover) will take place over the cemetery concurrently with a procession. Aircraft formations from each service will honor the Unknown Soldiers.”

Thanks to DJ for passing on from DCA:

“The biggest change to Reagan National Airport in more than 20 years is coming just in time for the holiday travel season: two new security screening checkpoint buildings. These consolidated security screening areas will expand shopping and dining options for ticketed passengers and make connecting to flights through DCA easier than ever. Read More
