So if you're about to travel for the holidays and that takes you through the Gerald R. Ford International Airport, you're probably going to need to allow extra time to get through check-in and security, because construction at the ticket counter area when you first walk in, is causing a few delays to get you to the gate.

When you first come in you'll see walls up around the different airlines, and because space is lost, there are a lot of lines, just for checking in to the different airlines - it's definitely taking longer than we're all used to.

Then you add in the extended security lines, with everyone traveling and all of a sudden, you've missed your flight because you still thought this was easy 'ol Grand Rapids airport.

I also found out that Thursday mornings seem to be the busiest times for the airport in general, according to the airport staff I talked to about waiting in line for 45 minutes to get through security.

I just wanted you to have the heads up if you're like me and it's been a little bit since you had to go to the airport to fly out.  Happy Holidays
