New security procedures.

Jump to last reply

The news here reports that TSA has some new requirements. One involves our shoes. The other involves battery powered equipment. I haven't heard what they do with shoes, but with any of our devices that runs on batteries, we will have to turn the device on to prove that the battery is a battery.

We're getting ready for an early Thursday flight, and we're both surprised by how many things we have with batteries, and wondering how we will be able to make our proofs. Some items we will move to checked bags, but it appears that we will be in for a very slow screening.

Has anyone been through this yet. How do they do it and how much extra time will we be in for? Any hope they haven't started yet?
