Shutdown isn't affecting Orlando International Airport operations, officials say

TSA Workers Are Now Quitting Because of the Government Shutdown Union SaysMore

Flights that were previously scheduled to depart from Concourse G after 1 p.m. this Saturday, Sunday and Monday will be relocated either to Concourse F or Concourse H.

One XNA passenger said he is concerned after his experience going through security at Los Angeles International Airport when flying back to Northwest Arkansas Friday evening. "They're erring on the side of caution".

The figure remains a nonstarter for Democrats, leaving Congress at an impasse that triggered the partial shutdown - which has affected key parts of the federal government, including the departments of Homeland Security, Justice, Interior, State and Housing and Urban Development.

TSA routinely opens and closes screening lanes as volume at airports rises and falls, Bilello said.

An FAA spokesman said earlier this week that the agency is recalling inspectors and focusing resources on overseeing airline operations.

"Our kids are in daycare and we can't pay for that right now".

Carl said ongoing investigations have been put on hold by the shutdown.

At New York's LaGuardia Airport, fliers had to wait in almost hour-long security lines on Sunday.

Andy Murray retires: Tearful Scot could quit after Australian Open
He insisted he would still try to play at the Australian Open but added "the pain is too much really". Andy Murray walks between points during his practice match against Serbia's Novak Djokovic .

"It is completely unacceptable that the women and men who risk their lives safeguarding our airports are still required to report for work without knowing when they'll be paid again", AFGE National President J. David Cox Sr. said.

"We have been coming to work day after day for 3 weeks now without getting paid", said American Federation of Government Employees Chief Union Steward Joshua Christie.

There have been scattered complaints about long lines, but for the most part, travelers say they aren't seeing an impact.

Passengers can use the new MIA Airport Officialmobile app, available for free at the iPhone and Google Play app stores, to: scan their boarding pass and immediately receive turn-by-turn, blue-dot navigation with estimated walk times; real-time flight updates and airport advisories; and shopping and dining suggestions nearby, based on their customizable personal profile. Most dropped the idea after TSA's performance improved.

NATCA's lawsuit is the third this week filed by labor unions representing federal employees.

If a significant number of controllers missed work, the Federal Aviation Administration could be forced to extend the amount of time between takeoffs and landings, which could delay travel, it said.

Democrats say Trump shut the government in a "temper tantrum" by refusing to sign bipartisan funding legislation a year ago that did not include money for his wall.

Other airports are looking at ways to support employees, like bringing in utility companies to give workers more flexibility on paying their bills or a credit union that could help provide loans.
