The line at LaGuardia Airport in New York stretched through the terminal on June 19, as the airport cited spillover from mass cancellations on June 16-17 as the reason for longer waits.
Footage recorded by Glenn E Martin shows the long line just before 6 am on Sunday.
Martin said he “was in line the moment I exited my Uber” and that the queue snaked through the entire terminal. It took him 90 minutes to pass security, a process that he said would normally take 15-20 minutes, he said.
LaGuardia Airport replied to Martin’s tweet, citing “higher passenger volume” due to mass cancellations on Thursday and Friday as the reason for the longer wait time. Credit: Glenn E. Martin via Storyful
