Atlanta - You may remember the warnings about long waits at the airport during talks about sequestration. Weeks into the federal cuts, how are things going?
Data from the Transportation Security Administration reported 20-30 minute waits at two checkpoints at Hartsfield-Jackson Airport Wednesday. Only twice in the past two weeks have passengers reported waiting 30 minutes or more at TSA checkpoints.
Some travelers say they aren't having any problems. Ken Maharaj said, "There's no wait at the security gates. It was a snap." Betsy Bootle said she "really didn't have any problems. It may have been 15 minutes."
A Department of Transportation spokesman says everything will change on April 21 when the agency plans to start forcing 47,000 air traffic controllers and aviation safety inspectors to take days off. It's then they say we could see wait times of 60 to 90 minutes at the airport.
