I just returned from Labor Day travel, I agree that there was neglible difference in security or check-in. Having said that, I noticed the same things that have always happened, not a great deal of consistency in security and what you can and can't take on the plane. I felt sorry for a lady who had flown from New York the night before and had an early flight out of San Diego and some sort of liquid item she had was allowed on the previous flight, made it thru security but she was searched again at the gate and TSA decided to take what ever it was. She was pretty good about it all but when you have flown cross country and gone thru multiple securlity lines you expect you are ok. Didn't know what it was but I did not take anything on the plane, I wear contacts and was told it would be ok if I had a prescription but instead I just wore them and left the case and solution in the hecked bag, didn;t want to risk losing them to TSA. I was ok becasue the flight was short but it would be bad if it was a long flight but I think most of us just adapt pretty well.
