    Pseudo TSA pre-check. Get an orange card and bypass the porno scanner!

    security can be a pain in the ass. I had to wait 15 minutes for their female assistant to show up and search me because I had an unidentified hard drive in my bag (camera) and almost missed my flight

    If you can avoid it, try not to fly to Atlanta from here. The hold ups are never ROA's fault, and always ATL's.

    The bus from the parking lot to the terminal does not run as advertised. Plan on walking. They have x-ray for checked baggage now. TSA lines are short but many travelers inexperienced & cause delays.

    If you drive and park in long term parking, catch the shuttle versus walking a mile with your bags.

    No need to go too early. Park rental, drop off keys, check luggage, get passed security, & to your gate under 30 minutes.

    Don't go to you gate until you need to, stay at the lounge outside the checkpoint. Security is a breeze and the cafe inside the TSA checkpoint doesn't take credit cards! What is this the 19th century
