Northwest Cuts Customer Arrival Times to Normal Levels


Quote:
MINNEAPOLIS, Nov. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Northwest Airlines (Nasdaq: NWAC - news) today announced that effective immediately, it is asking customers to arrive at the airport 90 minutes prior to departure for domestic flights and 120 minutes prior to departure for international flights.

The change is a 25% reduction from the current ``two hours-in-advance'' request being made by Northwest and many other airlines, and a 20% reduction from the two-and-a-half hours requested of customers on international flights. The 90- and 120-minute requests are the same advance arrival times that Northwest asked of its customers prior to mid-September.

Well finally. If I had to wait at any airports any longer, I think that I would go crazy. Waiting in those atrocious security lines are almost as bad as having to circle when you go pick up a friend. I understand that parked cars could pose a security threat, but come on; I canít wait in my car by the baggage claim.
