Travel TIP Tuesday: Line Up Behind Business Travelers
We’ve all been there. You line up at security only to get stuck behind a passenger with multiple carry-ons, an oversized jacket, wearing a giant metal watch, and a large buckled belt. As you reach the conveyor belt, he struggles to lift his bags up, and you notice he hasn’t removed his shoes or accessories. As the passenger approaches the security screening agent, he’s told to remove his jacket, belt, watch, and shoes and put them on the conveyor. The passenger complies, but as he begins to walk through the X-ray screener, all the bells go off. It turns out he has his earbuds in his ear and his mobile phone in his pocket.
Now imagine you’re standing behind a business traveler. He has one small compact rolling bag and a briefcase. Before he even reaches the conveyer belt, he’s prepped and ready to go through.
Which passenger would you rather be behind?
Not everyone enjoys access to priority security-screening privileges. Your best bet is to stick close to the business travelers. They usually travel light, they know what’s expected of them, and they speed right through because they’ve done it a hundred times.
