The data highlighted specific challenges faced by North Dakota residents, with the state ranking second in struggling with carry-on luggage and sixth in inefficiency at security checkpoints. A significant 55% admitted to standing too close to the baggage carousel, causing delays for fellow travelers. Additionally, 32% reported frequent struggles to fit their carry-ons into overhead compartments. Believe me, it's not just a North Dakota thing!
The survey also brought attention to the security screening process, with 35% of respondents from North Dakota admitting to accidentally passing through the scanner with personal items such as phones, jewelry, and keys. Furthermore, 33% stated that they had needed reminders from TSA agents to remove belts or shoes during security checks.
