The Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport ushered in mini therapy horses.
WATCH: Airports are offering clowns, mini therapy horses, snacks and more to calm anger over long TSA lines. https://t.co/dDiIdc2oKy— Good Morning America (@GMA) May 17, 2016
According to the Telegraph, the TSA blames budget cuts and an increase in people traveling, but passengers blame the fact that there are more carry-ons due to increased fees in checked luggage (which, to be honest, is not the TSA’s fault).
Airline Travel in America is Pathetic! It should not take a whole day to travel from LA to Chicago. Incompetence at Work.#hatethewait— Chairman Revolution (@ComradeEadweard) May 18, 2016
The TSA has agreed to hire 800 new screeners by June, but the union that represents workers say they will need 6,000 new workers to make a difference in security lines, according to the Daily Mail. I guess, until then, people will just have to arrive at airports days early and enjoy clowns and ponies while they wait.
Airlines charge large fees for baggage -> more carry-ons -> backing up x-ray machines. What % of fees help pay for that? #iHateTheWait— scott slomiany (@doho123) May 17, 2016
