DIA gets few gripes about airport scans

DENVER – Federal statistics show Denver’s airport gets the fewest passenger complaints about security screeners among the nation’s 10 busiest airports, while Las Vegas gets the most.

The Denver Post reported Monday that travelers filed just five complaints about screeners at Denver International over a 45-month period from 2003 to 2006. McCarren Airport in Las Vegas had the most with 80.

The Transportation Security Administration released the totals at the newspaper’s request.

Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport had 76 complaints, the second-highest. Houston had 16, the second-lowest.

TSA says about 10 percent of the complaints nationwide are related to the way screeners treated passengers.

TSA spokeswoman Carrie Harmon says the agency screens about 2 million passengers a day.
