Lines move steadily Friday at Memphis International Airport

Security lines moved faster at Memphis International Airport Friday morning, but those arriving, like Ann Duffy, said that wasn't the case in other airports.

"It was an hour just to get through security, so we got there over two hours early, and just made our flight," she said.

Some delays were attributed to this morning's doubling of security, meaning you may get checked in the security line and once again as you board. But, much to their surprise, not everyone we spoke with went through that second check.

According to the Transportation Security Administration, the double checks are random. Certain flights will be targeted depended on where they're headed.

Most air travelers said people seemed better prepared Friday for the tougher security restrictions.

"Everybody I guess was watching the news yesterday so I didn't see any problems with liquids or gels having to be removed," said traveler Alvin Smith.

Airport officials still say the problems in Memphis are minimal.
