SFO security line update + mod SFO video

Today The BAT received an update regarding changes in TSA security checkpoints at United’s Terminal 3 at San Francisco International. Here’s the latest:

  • The current United Airlines Premier checkpoint (F3 on western side of Terminal 3) is currently under construction to expand to six lanes. The target for completion is the end of January 2014. (That’s also the estimated opening date for the brand new Boarding Area E (which replaced old American gates).
  • The next phase is to expand the F1 checkpoint (on the eastern side of Terminal 3) to ten lanes. That project should be ready by the summer of 2015.
  • Once both new security checkpoints are up and running, the current F2 checkpoint (in the middle of Terminal 3) will be eliminated.

NEON SFO. The video above is a new short film by local filmmaker James O’Malley, which shows the beauty our very own SFO in time-lapse neon. Titled ’Neon San Francisco,’ the video showcases the flurry of activity that occurs daily at San Francisco International Airport and was made with the hope of reconnecting the audience with the romance of air travel. Take a look at the video and let us know… Does it do that for you? Enjoy!
