So while it was the sanest security screening I’ve ever had, it was a disaster getting to the security screening. The line was extremely long and disorganized. At one point TSA stopped every single traveler and setup a portion of the line where were we assigned to walk two people across.
There was a TSA dog with about 8 agents. We thought at first it was for distancing. But that seemed silly after we had been smashed together for 25 minutes.
Maybe the dog was sniffing for a specific thing. But why send only a portion of the travelers through the two-by-by gauntlet of dog and agents? And why two people at a time? Two random people.
It was the weird. No one there seemed to know what they were doing or why. But once we were through that portion of the wait, TSA hurried us up to the screening areas.
As if we were holding them up, when they stopped the line entirely.
It was the weirdest airport experience I’ve had and completes my the trip with three separate airports having three separate sets of security protocols.
At BWI we left everything in our bags, but shoes and belt came off. Full body scanner with a spot check.
In Salt Lake City, electronics had to come out of bags. Shoes off. Belt on. Full body scanner. No spot check.
In Denver, everything stayed in bags. Shoes on. Belt on. No full body scanner. Only a metal detector.
