For an easier process through airport security:
1. Wear slip-on shoes. Slip on shoes make a huge difference.
2. Be prepared for the laptop routine. When putting your items through the scanner, take your laptop or other large electronic device out of its case and put each item in its own tray. Airports always require you to do that.
3. Is your name on your ticket different from your name on your license because you just got married and US social security is so slow? Cool, I’m not the only one. It’s going to be okay. Just take your marriage license to show the security officer.
