CHICAGO (AP) — The lines of Thanksgiving travelers moved quickly and smoothly at airports around the country Wednesday morning despite an Internet campaign to get passengers to gum up the works on one of the busiest days of the year by refusing full-body scans.
The Transportation Security Administration said very few passengers opted out. And there were only scattered protesters at some airports.
After days of tough talk on the Internet and warnings of possible delays, some passengers decided to go to the airport especially early — and were pleasantly surprised by what they found.
Retirees Bill and Margaret Selfridge arrived three hours early at the Minneapolis-St. Paul airport for their flight to Washington. But it took only 10 minutes to get through the checkpoint at 8 a.m.
"Now we get to drink a lot of coffee," Bill Selfridge said.
Ruth Billingsly, 52, also arrived three hours early at the Philadelphia airport for her trip to Los Angeles. "It was a breeze," she said. "I'm really, really early. Maybe I should take a nap."
