Passengers flood Atlanta airport after Super Bowl weekend

Nearly 102,000 passengers flew out of Atlanta's international airport the Monday after the Super Bowl.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports passengers waited for up to an hour-and-a-half to get through security on what many call Mass Exodus Monday. Lines went all the way from the domestic terminal atrium into the airline check-in areas.

The airport's assistant general manager of planning, Tom Nissalke, says the airport had "established a plan to essentially use every available square foot and fill it with queuing."
