LAX Line for Security: Go Wait Outside

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

Bundle up folks. This isn't a line to get into LAX; this is a line to get through TSA security at LAX's United Terminal. Once you get inside, you go back out to go back in.

With yesterday's delays, you may be thinking this picture was taken then. No, it was taken last Saturday afternoon. We can't even imagine what it will be like today and in the coming days.
