The Daily News reports that travelers at area airports had a pretty easy time, apparently because less people are flying due to the economy. One Brooklyn resident made sure to get to LaGuardia 2 1/2 hours before her flight, "but instead of waiting in endless lines she was sipping a Bloody Mary before her on-time flight." Another person waiting (and drinking!) said he could "probably go home [to Forest Hills] and come back and still make it." And a traveler at JFK Airport, who said it took him 5 minutes to check in, marveled, "This is the easiest I've ever seen, by far and away. It's practically a ghost town." Readers, if you were traveling yesterday, we hope your journeys were similarly stress-free.
