America’s busiest airport, Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International, and airports all over the United States are warning passengers to arrive extra early for their flight.
Because of the government shutdown, airports are advising travelers that it might take three hours or more to clear TSA security. There have been nationwide reports of TSA agents calling in sick and some U.S. airports have even closed terminals because of the shutdown.

Are you flying soon? Are you concerned about how long the security wait will be at the airport?
