CHICAGO — The security lines at O’Hare Airport are a whole lot shorter.
Last week, fliers had to wait as long as three hours to get through security. But Tuesday, the wait in TSA lines was down to just 15 minutes.
There were no scenes of people stranded for the night after missing their flights.
The TSA turned 100 part-time screeners into full-time employees, and dozens of additional screeners will take their positions at O’Hare and Midway Airports over the coming month.
