Air Travelers Left Baffled, Frustrated By Sea-Tac Screening Process

Sea-Tac has been through a series of temporary solutions that technically achieved Congress' mandate, but were far from secure.


By that time, the Port of Seattle will have spent about $150 million - and added 12 miles of conveyor system - to run the in-line baggage operation.

The system is operational at the United Airlines section and the far south end, where Delta and Hawaiian are located. The next area to make the switch: C-60, which services Southwest.

"It turned out to be much, way, way, much more complicated than we envisioned," Fitch said.
