The TSA is useless security theater. There will never be another 9/11 style attack, it's why Al-Qaeda made sure to do them all on the same day. They were counting on people doing what they were told for decades, better than 30 years, during a hijackings: "Sit down, shut up, and wait patiently. Odds are you'll walk away if they get the plane on the ground."

Now? Nobody will ever just sit waiting. Every single person who is not a child or physically incapable will attack hijackers. We've seen it multiple times, and they are beaten down by passengers.

Austin is why I never fly into or out of AUS. If I have work in the area, I fly into DFW or SAT. Bonus, if you fly into SAT, you can take the back roads up to AUS where the speed limit is a whopping and enjoying 85.

I recently flew through AUS and it wasn't bad. But I did look at the departures screen and it looked a lot different than it did 20 years ago when the airport was new. Back then you had a handful of flights on Southwest and American to Houston, Dallas, Chicago, and Atlanta. Now you see London, Honolulu, Frankfurt and Amsterdam in additional to most major North American cities. Getting to San Juan from Austin used to be really painful. Now there's a non-stop flight.

2.5 hours before your flight?
I used to be on a plane 50x year for a previous job. Very glad to have had (and still have) tsaprecheck. If I didn't have a checked bag, I might have been to the airport 35 minutes before my flight. But I haven't been on a plane in 5 years now.

Price of operating. But our accounting also recognizes that 2.5 hours is also lost money.
I have Global Entry, TSA Pre, and Clear, so seldom do I wait very long. If you travel, these are life changers.
