    Give yourself a ton of time. I think this may be the worst in USA.

    FYI, you don't have to remove your shoes anymore. Take a few minutes before you approach the checkpoint to make sure you have your stuff together to speed the process along.

    Fly A List on Southwest and you can bypass the massive security line by using the priority lane on the right.

    Be nice to the TSA Employees. .it's not their fault. There's nothing you can do about it here at the checkpoint. Vote and write your Congressmen.

    Stay to the left in lane 2, line moves faster because lane 1 is reserved for special needs but agents will let part of lane 2 use the line.

    Use the middle lanes. They sometimes get TWO reps. Whereas the outer lanes always haves share a single person.

    Get on the A-List and zip through security. Also remember 3-3-1. Remove your shoes and all metal objects.

    Don't be fooled by the metal detectors and think this is an easy Tsa checkpoint. These guys have no idea what they are looking for. They will also always bag check you.

    In the morning, arriving before 430am means no lines. For the early birds, getting in that little bit early means a big difference.

    The far right line takes you through the rights-violating strip search machine. Stay left to avoid getting strip searched & irradiated.

    Preferred boarding security lanes are hard to see when It's packed but just look a little harder. The land will be on either wall

    This is a terrible place to spend the night. But if you take Southwest, you may have to! The desk clerks are rude, and the rent a cops get off on bullying hapless travelers.
