The airport shuttle van picks us up in good time and deposits us at the airport without a hitch.
There's a fairly long line at the TSA check point, and we appreciate the much shorter elite security line.
Today the walk-through metal detector is at the far left, but an employee is alternating passengers between it and the adjacent X-Ray scanner. Both of us manage through luck (and trying to wait until there's somebody in line at the X-Ray scanner) to go through the metal detector. No groping "administrative search" today.
We're drinking our coffee and surveying the slim but existing possibility of a bump on both of our slightly oversold flights today. Either way, we're off to a good start.
