- Friedman Memorial Airport
The Mountain Express reports the issue has surfaced on a couple of occasions this summer, one in a letter from organizers of a large Sun Valley conference and another during a meeting of the Friedman Airport Authority board meeting earlier this month.
"I saw some very angry people waiting for their bags to be inspected at the end of the TSA line while other people passed by," Blaine County Commissioner Larry Schoen told the board."We all, I think, should have a dialogue about this."
Indeed a representative from SkyWest Airlines has even relayed concerns about "some passengers in Sun Valley who have missed flights due to a lengthy security process," according to the Mountain Express.
But a spokesman from TSA is pushing back hard against the complaints, saying he "guarantee(d) that it didn't happen, because I would have been told about it and I would have had to make a report to Washington."
