It’s about time.
A Twin Cities man has sued the TSA and the Twin Cities airport operator for $506.85, the cost of missing his flight and having to buy a ticket for another flight due to a long security delay, the kind that have been hitting major airports all across the country lately.
Via Star Tribune:
In the lawsuit filed in federal court last week, Hooman Nikizad said his wait of more than 90 minutes on March 19 before he passed through security screening by the federal Transportation Security Administration (TSA) made him miss his afternoon flight to Los Angeles.
“I had to buy a ticket with another airline to be able to make my destination and meet my obligations,” Nikizad said in his claim, which noted the TSA had limited staff on duty at the time and “only one body scanner for the regular security line [in operation].”
Nikizad, a resident surgeon with the University of Minnesota, said in his suit that the TSA and the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport “have done a very poor job of getting passengers through security.”
Some airports have seen delays as long as three hours just to get people through TSA. Airports have begun providing entertainment for pissed off travelers, and airlines are handing out cots in the ever-more-likely event people miss their flights and wind up having to sleep in the airport.
This is surely only the first of many lawsuits to come. Can you imagine if lawsuits like this one started popping up everywhere as citizens across America starting fight back against this airport tyranny?
How long until the TSA would be finished? After all, if people can’t even make it onto their flights to begin with because TSA takes too long, then there won’t be much left to “secure” will there.
