East Texas Regional Enforces TSA Precautions

Much the same thing at East Texas Regional Airport in Longview, where TSA precautions are also being enforced.

Passengers waited in security lines, and some had to repack their bags after reading signs allowing no liquids aboard.

Many travelers we spoke with say the changes are a small price to pay for a safe flight.

Tara Amis is flying to Dallas.  She says, "It's frustrating that I had to check a bag I didn't want to but I mean it's not that big of a deal really, if they don't want us to bring gel or liquid, I mean I won't pack that next time I go on the plane."

"With what's gone on before and what's going on everywhere I don't think it's surprising. I'm thankful that they found it, this particular threat," says Doris, who is dropping her family off at the airport. 

East Texas Regional and had no problems and no flight delays were reported.
