Phone Home Free from SUX

It’s my second week as guest contributor for the Airport Check-In column over at USA TODAY.

This week’s topics include new registered traveler lanes at the D.C. airports, new self-select “diamond lanes” at security checkpoints in Boston, Orlando and Spokane, Washington, and the free local and toll-free phone service offered at Iowa’s Sioux Gateway Airport. Yes – free phone calls at an airport!

Sioux Gateway is the small airport that finally embraced its SUX airport code a few months back and is now raking in the bucks selling “Fly SUX” t-shirts, caps and bumper stickers.
