U.S. travelers adjusting to new rules
MIAMI - After a day of long lines and confusion, travelers arriving at U.S. airports Friday were better prepared for new rules, tighter security and bans on liquids of all types.
Rather than filling trash cans at security checkpoints with now-banned bottles of makeup, perfume and suntan lotion, travelers were packing those items in their checked luggage instead.
That helped shrink security check lines for domestic flights to lengths closer to normal Friday morning at Miami International Airport, spokesman Greg Chin said. Operations at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport were back to normal, with security line waits between 30 and 60 minutes, said Transportation Security Administration spokeswoman Lara Uselding.
