    Stuttgart Daily Leader: Passengers complain about wait times at LR airport

    How can I break this to you gently, other than to say that you've been had. The "upgrade" is part of a multi-billion dollar sham.

    An average of 15 - 18 minutes for an airport the size of Little Rock? That's (expletive deleted) ridiculous!

    I'll tell you this, I've noticed at other airports that my wait time is significantly longer now that NoS is primary and sole screening.

    It's just so out of character for the TSA to lie.

    LR handles around 1.1 million pax/year (~3,000/day). Adding ten seconds to each screening results in a total delay of 500 minutes/day (~8 hours 20 minutes per day). Even halved for two scanners that is over 4 hours added to the total time spent in checkpoints.

    Oh sooooooooo confused! I saw the thread title and was wondering why anyone would complain about the wait times at German airports (5 minutes is a 'wait') and especially STR.

    Then I saw that it was an American airport and it all made sense.

    Same here, I had no idea that we have a Stuttgart. According to their website, Stuttgart, AR, is the rice and duck capitol of the world. Quack.

    ACY is an airport often listed by the leisure crowd as easier due to the size and lack of waits. Adding scanners will open some more eyes to this issue.

    Look up zip code 18241 for a surprise.
