So U.S. airports are trying to keep travelers entertained during long TSA waits. They have resorted to various methods including clowns, music and food and miniature therapy horses to reduce stress. Thousands of travelers have missed flights this year due to TSA wait times
Airports, the TSA and state government officials are trying to find solutions. More than 400 passengers missed their flights on Sunday due to the TSA. Passengers are asked to show up at least three hours early for domestic flights. However, many passengers have said that is not enough time to get through security and still make their flight

“I won’t apologize for doing our job well.” ~ – TSA Administrator Peter Neffenger
