I wonder what it's like at DCA and at LAX? I plan to fly from both airports next week, and will be carrying my iPhone 8+, iPad mini, and laptop. Does that mean I have to take out the iPad and Mac, and place in separate bins? What a waste. What about food? I plan on packing snacks.

DCA

Just flew through DCA today. The TSO asked if I had any food in my bag. I replied no, and there was no search thru my bag.

I flew out of PHL D Terminal yesterday afternoon, everyone sort of got the TSA PreCheck system, told to leave shoes, jackets and belts on and electronics stay in bags, if you beeped in the standard metal detector you got sent to the body scanner. The TSA employee directing everyone made no mention of food and claimed they were testing out a new system, half of the people in line were confused or not paying attention and took off their shoes and tried to go into the body scanner only to be directed to the metal detector.

For some PreCheck passengers at TSA screening checkpoints, I've seen TSA ask for the passengers to take out sausages and cheese but leave other things as usual. Seen this in recent weeks at airports catering to "cheeseheads".

Was a TSA or other security canine present?

That is what Chicago (the local government) paid for to make things faster for ORD passengers.

Did PHL pay for that kind of approach to speed up things too?
