precheck lines. the other day i was going through and that line is as long as the other lines. >> that's presumed the line is even open. the last seven days, i've flown in airports and five of those lines were closed. even if you have tsa precheck, my advice is get to the airport early. up may not get in that line. >> why is the line closed? >> lines are closed because of staffing issues. they're still not at the right staffing levels that they should be, authorized to be. even with that budget help, they're not there yet. i was at syracuse, baton rouge, new york. terminal 2. miami, those large ones, not open. just about weaware of that, it y not be open. >> any tips for driving? >> yeah, alternate way of driving meaning leave at night. tonight leave during the day. leave at 9:00 at night. let the kids nap in the car. you'll be much better off. if you're traveling today or
