MORE AUSTIN AIRPORT DRAMA
This isn't the first time Austin Airport has been impacted by troubling news. Nearly a year ago an airport traffic catastrophe plagued Austin-Bergstrom.
After a rental car stalled out in line at the airport, traffic quickly began to stack up. So much so, people began abandoning their cars in the middle of traffic and rushing into the airport to make their flights on time.
What a wild world we live in. Photos of the traffic jam began to circulate, along with the massive line inside TSA. Nearly 9,000 passengers were checked in by TSA before 8 am that morning.
