So, yes, until a few minutes ago, there was quite the delay at Dallas Love Field: According to Southwest Airlines spokeswoman Ashley Rogers, "there was a white powder" found in a lower-level bathroom, which briefly prompted the closing of the main security checkpoint near the Southwest check-in area. Folks were only being allowed through the upper-level checkpoint, prompting significant delays: According to one Twitterer stuck at Love, "Spent 45 mins checking luggage. Now 45 minute wait for security."
But, oh, two minutes ago, she called to say that Dallas police had given the "all-clear," and operations at the airport have returned to normal. And if you got stuck, well, Rogers says fret not: "We are holding a few flights to make sure everyone makes it on."
