    For the main security gates at the top of the stairs, if there are only 2 TSA agents checking boarding passes, stay to the left when the line forks!!! Otherwise you compete with disorganized families.

    Never had any problems frying out of Terminal 1. Make sure you allow yourself extra time to get through security. Lines can get long quick.

    If you get diverted to the upstairs TSA screen area by Gate 1, this is proof of a vengeful god punishing you. Training ground of swollen egos and undiagnosed ADD.

    Use the 2 hour rule!!! I cannot stress this enough people. Especially if you're renting a car. And use any other security check other than the one directly by terminal 1.

    Lines vary widely from 1 hour to no wait, nearly impossible to predict. Either spring for bus select or get here early. Even tears and babies don't help speed up the process if the line is endless

    Gate 9 is so quiet and peaceful. Wow. Go here to get a break from the hectic airport background noise.

    The security lines can look long at peak times but they tend to move fast.

    The mezzanine TSA can be quicker... Especially if you're going to gate 1 or 2

    Preferred line is always fairly fast. Tack right for security line after ID check as they are shorter although they appear longer.

    Avoid the second TSA lane from the left if you are in a rush today. Easily 2x slower than other lines this morning.

    Is it really a good idea to make the chairs in the airport more comfortable than the chairs on the planes? Find these chairs around Gate 7.

    Pays to upgrade if you're running close on time. The lines for Southwest, especially in the morning, can be a disaster :(

    TSA set up needs improvement. Long line reminds me of McCarran in Vegas but they entertain with videos. Southwest, please prove set up

    Allow at least 20 minutes to clear TSA. It seems to take twice as long to clear TSA @SouthwestAir vs. @AmericanAir at Terminal 4 @LAX_Official

    Avoid Terminal 1 for any early morning flights. Security line is longer than The Odyssey.

    The TSA is a joke here. 500 overweight twats who can't figure out a damn thing. When did it become OK to be called 'boss' when walking through? We aren't playing B-BAL at the park, 'BRO'.
