Why airport lines may be even longer this summer

With air travel hitting an all-time high and terrorism concerns complicating the airport security process this summer, long lines at airports could cause extra headaches for travelers.

Some 90% of Americans plan to travel this summer, according to a study of 1,300 people from Airfarewatchdog.com, and of those 84% plan to fly at least part of the way to their destination. The travel website found interest in summer travel is at an all-time high, up 50% from last year.

The surge in travel comes as the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) announced new procedures at security checkpoints, which will require travelers to empty all food and electronics into separate bins to be sent through X-ray machines.
