The TSA will award a total of $15,000 to folks who can come up with ideas on how to handle lines. The agency promises at least one recipient will receive $5,000; others can receive $2,500 up a total of $15,000
I have to tell you, I’m not impressed with the award amount, but be that as it may, we already have lines at larger airports for first-class flyers, elite-level flyers, TSAPre-registered flyers. Lines for active military personnel, airline crews, and passengers in wheelchairs.
I think the TSA should start by letting its employees use more common sense on the job, generally speaking, but perhaps you have a specific, creative idea on how to move those security lines more quickly. Those small holders that look like water bowls for dogs, for example, were a good idea; previously, we had to dump coins and keys into those big bins and then spend time clumsily retrieving those items.
If you have an idea, here’s where you can submit it.
