This is my first trip since liquids have been banned. The lines to check bags are longer but you go through the security faster because more people are checking their bags. A lot of folks are walking around the terminal with just a briefcase. This makes boarding the plane a lot saner than before. No need to fight for overhead space.
My flight, CO 1708 has been delayed an hour due to mechanical problems. Thank goodness I'm on an exit row seat with no front seat.
Looking forward to cooler weather in Chicago.
