An editorial by the Fort Worth Star-Telegram said fixing long customs lines for passengers and airports should be a priority. Dallas/Fort Worth Airport has the longest average wait of major U.S. airports and the second-longest waiting period of 69 minutes at peak times. The editorial also points out that navigating through customs can take much longer. Star-Telegram reporter Andrea Ahles cited a day in July when arriving travelers endured waits lasting longer than three hours. "The last thing an airline passenger wants to face after completing an eight-to-12-hour flight from overseas is spending another several hours waiting to clear customs at the airport," the editorial said.
