 US2014-03-22The absolute rudest worker barking instructions, being condescending and demanding. 730a
 AA22013-10-04Only precheck had a WTMD. Everyone else through the MMW. Had a patdown-not incredibly nice agent. Try to get precheck if possible-AA, US. United- to avoid these b-st-rds.3p
 DL22013-09-27All through MMW330p
 B622013-07-29MWWs in action at all open lanes. Occasional "issues" with the MMW were letting some people through the WMTD, but entirely random and not that frequent.310p20
 CO22013-06-19i f*cking hate you210p
 AA22013-03-26MMW. Opt-out went fine as usual for me...not sure why others seem to have a bad experience.
 DLTerminal 22013-03-19Sending everyone through AIT, basically no exceptions.1000a
 WN12013-02-07Hate RDU. Funny how you wear same clothes, same everything and this is the only airport that I get patted down. Happened 3 times at RDU. Be sure you don't ask to go to private room. Want everyone to see the patdown. 6a
 DLBOTH2012-11-20You pitiful smurfs sexually assaulted me this time of year in 2010. I will NEVER forgive you! They are remodelling T1 and I would expect more sexual assaults to come to innocent americans. I will always hate you and what you have done to RDU.
 AA22012-11-05Only MMW forced to opt-out which this airport hates600a
 WN12012-09-25Always MMW. Unhappy with opt outs. Mostly rude and slow agents. This airport is the worst! 2
 WNTerminal 12012-08-13WTMD blocked off. MMW was primary for all passengers except for families with small children.130p
 DL22012-07-11today marks a day of victory. never again will I submit to the degrading sexual assaults RDU TSA inflicts on a daily basis (they assaulted me two years ago). I am now a licensed pilot and will fly myself now WITHOUT the assaults from them. RDU is always RED unless you get really really lucky- DON'T count on it. Let's all protest by getting our pilot's licenses. It's not that hard if you pick a chief flight instructor.100p
 DL2012-06-06RDU IS RED ALWAYS unless you are what they view as a "family." get your private pilot's license folks. IT'S SAFER THAN YOU'D EVER KNOW! I am the first pilot in my family!!! =) We don't have to put up with this. Their tyranny should open up new opportunities in general aviation. Would you rather be microwaved or enjoy flying again?
 AA22012-06-06100% directed to NoS forced to opt-out, typical horrible RDU600a
 DLTerminal 22012-05-21Typical RDU, everyone thru DNA shredder, opted out630a10
 22012-05-02lol stupid smurfs. I was probably one of their most hated customers as I always yelled at the moat dragons lol. I think its so funny I landed on RWY 23L in my own airplane at RDU just thinking about how stupid they are that they would sexually assault 75% of the people in there.
 22012-04-16Polite and fast screeners. But patdown unnecessarily aggressive.
 DL22012-03-01Probably 2/3rd forced through AIT. Possibility of timing it on the x-ray belt line to sneak through the WTMD.300p
 AA22012-02-27Didnt recognize global entry card again. Everyone through mmw. Pat down was quick and perfunctory930a2
 DLterminal 22012-02-23Everyone went through backscatter except young children and parent. I didn't see anyone opt out.a

 DL22011-11-21sending familier with kids to WTMD, most others to AIT
 AATerminal 22011-11-01Forcing all thru MMW. TSA unusually arrogant and rude at RDU.
 DL22011-10-26How about doing an Occupy Raleigh @ RDU? I REFUSE TO GO ANYWHERE NEAR RDU. This is TSA tyranny at its worst. They are discrimanatory against adults. Unless every single passenger goes thru MMW, it is a bias and a civil liberty issue.
 AA22011-10-25Typical RDU, TSA gestapo, will not accept trusted traveler ID issued by Homeland Security, simply amazing
 DL2011-10-06there are 2 sides to every story. get law enforcement involved, and i'll become the law enforcement...what you've done to innocent travelers in my hometown is DISGUSTING.

 AA22011-06-06TSA very rude , avoid RDU if possible
 AA22011-05-31Rdu is now Virtually 100% naked scan and slow lines. Gso will be become my new base now.

 AA22011-04-16TSO stands in front of machine, randomly pointing people towards AIT or metal detectors
 DL22011-03-03Everyone directed to Cancer machine. TSA became irate and summoned leo when I opted out. LEO rolled his eyes at TSA groper quite a bit.
 AA22011-02-212 lines, one with MMW, one with metal detector. Pretty easy to just pick the line without the MMW to avoid it.
 DLTerminal 22011-02-162 lines with scanners only. 1 line with metal detector only. Caution: random scanner use for some metal detector passengers.
 DLTerminal 22011-01-26TSO's try to get opt outs to get their pat down in a private room, but I said no.
