Flying during Thanksgiving holiday? Tell us about it

23

November

traveler.jpgTalk of humiliating body scans and invasive pat-downs is adding stress for holiday travelers nationwide, even discouraging some from flying.

"This makes you feel like a criminal," said Richard Figg, 78, who was being patted down Monday before leaving on a flight from Tampa to Austin, Texas.

Anyone who is unable, or refuses, to go through the scanning machines will go through a pat-down.

With Thanksgiving travel time about to get in full gear (major jams/headaches), we would love to hear about your experiences with TSA at the airport. We want to hear whether you protested a patdown, and if so, what happens. If you are forced to endure a patdown, tell us how it went.

Post your comments here after traveling or e-mail me at kmcallister@sptimes.com.

Thanks much and happy traveling.
