Most of the nation's airports are reporting only a few delays after launching new baggage security measures.
Starting today, the airlines are now required to screen every piece of luggage before it's placed on a plane.
We'll check in on the Roanoke airport in just a moment, but first Jim Acosta reports from LaGuardia in New York.

((Many passengers knew they could roll with the new security measures when their luggage rolled into baggage claim. In the final analysis -- these passengers from Chicago were on time and so were their bags. Linda Grannon, Passenger "Actually it was shorter than the last times we've flown." As required by federal law -- airports and airlines started screening every bag... Some with multi-million dollar X-ray machines... others with bomb-sniffing dogs. Officer Paul Hadinger/Port Authority Police K-9 officer "Any bags that are in the common area of the airport, the dog is going to feel free to go up and sniff today." But there aren't enough dogs and machines to "sniff" every bag. So the airlines are checking as much as 90 percent of the luggage through "bag-matching" -- that is making sure that no bag is loaded onto a plane without its owner on board... a tedious and controversial idea. Michael Boyd, Aviation Expert; "I don't think that makes any sense to match bags. We want to make sure everything on a plane is screened -- not whether it's with a passenger or not." Cristy Bage, Passenger "It's a big hassle... But I guess it's worth it if it does anything." And how it all went depended on where you went. Thirty minutes for most to check-in at LaGuardia. Try two hours for Edward Jackson at Atlanta's Hartsfield Airport... a delay he never wants to repeat.
Edward Jackson, Passenger "I don't know if we can take a two hour delay each time we take a trip." But passengers told themselves "better safe than sorry" more than once today... the same patriotic patience shown so often since September 11th. Jim Acosta CBS News New York.))
