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.

Always Opt Out!
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.
Where you going boo?
Not going anywhere for awhile? Might want to bring a Snickers with you.
This is still so much better then LAX....
Get here early.......
Free feel ups.
Get on the A-List and zip through security. Also remember 3-3-1. Remove your shoes and all metal objects.
It's a long line make sure you eat & use the bathroom before you get to this point!
Doggone it, I still like these guys. :-)
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.
Don't fly on Monday mornings.....ugh!!!!
It's went fast n cool
Pretend your rights aren't being violated
You'll come for the patdown, you'll stay for the cavity search.
Biggest cluster.....of of airport security I have ever seen. Get with it Chicago. Hope I don't go on a watch list......
Craziest lines ever!!!
Watch for k Bencak sightings. Super famous but very friendly. Often seen here
Give pilots and support staff their own line instead of having them cut through the business select line
You're corralled passed the ID check now and directed to a checkpoint. Hope you don't get the body scan!
Watch for merging lines! Super slow.
TSA here needs to take lessons from ATL. This is ridiculous!!!
Porter folks use priority lanes
I second Mike best investment I ever made and as of now no body scanners
Give yourself a little extra time!
So slow...so very slow.
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
Stay away from the lanes on the right. Family lanes actually move faster.
arrive early and be ready for loooong lines
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.
Keep your ticket and I'd handy
Use the expert traveler line. People are scared of it.
