Slowly is the operative word. Between airlines and TSA, it's still not much better than a hostage situation when you get on a plane. It starts with selecting a ticket from an airline that will promise to fly you to jupiter for 99 bucks if you ignore the various fees, riders, surcharges, levies, taxes, etc. Then, security. How close can you get before we have to say we're dating, TSA? Then the flight; it's a bunch to check a bag and fifty bucks more if you're one gram over. On the upside, they'll let you try to stuff a carry on the size of a grand piano in the overhead, no time lost there, eh? And don't you have to be prepared to part with some rent money if you want a drink or processed snack food? I love to travel. But airline travel is working to change that.
