The TSA has called up National Deployment Officers to operate checkpoints as more screeners are absent. The agency says more TSA officers, unpaid in the partial shutdown, have been absent, some because of financial strain. Most airport wait times were within TSA standards on Saturday.
A winter storm threatening a wide stretch of the country could keep travelers grounded over the long holiday weekend, another headache for passengers already facing the prospect of lengthy security lines at some airports. Airlines are waiving fees to change flights at dozens of cities from Lincoln, Neb., to Bangor, Maine, as a winter storm moves eastward. The storm is slated to move rapidly across the Midwest into New England, intensifying along the way and bringing near-blizzard conditions over parts of New England Sunday, according to the National Weather Service.

Boeing stock looked like a strong buy even before the positive trade talk news between the world's two largest economies.
They aren't particularly worried, yet, but they also have no idea how long this thing is going to go.
A strong winter storm is grounding hundreds of winter flights from the Midwest to New England. The bad weather is ramping up pressure on airports, where absentee rates of TSA officers, unpaid in the shutdown, are rising. Airlines canceled hundreds of flights on Friday, as a rapidly-moving winter storm is forecast to bring snow, ice, sleet and heavy winds from the Midwest to New England, snarling travel during the busy three-day weekend.
Airlines waived change fees ahead of winter storm Harper. Travelers can change their tickets to travel as late as next week as the storm approaches the East Coast, bringing snow, sleet and heavy rain.
The two airlines based in North Texas saw mixed results in the annual airlines rankings put together by the Wall Street Journal.
The reputation of U.S. airlines took a beating last year amid several high-profile incidents that garnered international headlines. But heading into the holiday travel season, the number of official complaints lodged against U.S. air carriers actually saw a slight decrease compared to a year ago.
As ultra-low-fare Frontier continues to expand its presence in Chicago, the carrier could pose a larger threat to behemoths such as American Airlines and United Airlines.

This week's earnings release by Delta Air Lines (NYSE:DAL) was not much of a surprise. The company had issued an earnings warning on Jan. 3 -- cutting its unit revenue estimates down to about 3% from the prior estimate of 3.5%. There was a silver lining along with that warning: earnings would likely come in at the high end of October guidance. Still, DAL stock got hit hard when the results finally came. There was also a sell-off in Delta's airline peers, including in American Airlines Group (NASDAQ:AAL) and United Continental Holdings (NASDAQ:UAL). OK, then, what were the final fourth-quarter numbers? Well, overall revenues rose by 5% to $10.74 billion and earnings were $1.02 billion, or $1.49 per share. When adjusting for one-time factors, the earnings came to $1.30 per share. As for the Street consensus, it was for $10.72 billion on the top line and $1.28 per share for profits. And unit revenue increased by about 3.2%. InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips So, yes, on the news there was little impact on DAL stock. Yet, since mid-November, the shares have lost 15% of their value versus a 4.4% decline in the S&P 500 index. ### Delta Faces a Bumpy Ride Now going forward, there are likely to be more problems for DAL stock as the company is facing several headwinds. Note that the forecast for the current quarter is for earnings to range from 70 cents to 90 cents a share. Yet Wall Street had estimates for 74 cents a share. Oh, and Delta also announced that unit revenue would be flat to 2%. * 10 Growth Stocks With the Future Written All Over Them Part of this is due to a slowdown in the global economy, which is putting pressure on demand for travel. A stronger U.S. dollar isn't helping much, either. But curiously, the steep drop in oil prices may be another factor. Why? Airlines may get too aggressive in lowering prices. Let's face it, the business is notorious for being hyper competitive and susceptible to price wars. Although, perhaps the biggest wild card for DAL stock is the partial shutdown of the federal government. On the earnings call, the company's CEO, Ed Bastian, said that this could cost the airline roughly $25 million per month. The shutdown will also mean a delay in the rollout of Delta's new Airbus A220 aircraft, since the FAA officials have been furloughed. Being a good corporate citizen, the CEO also noted that Delta is working closely with TSA on steps to minimize travel delays, including mobilizing Delta employees to perform non-essential aspects of the security process. "We strongly encourage our elected officials to do their very best to resolve their differences and get our government fully opened as quickly as possible," he said. ### Bottom Line on DAL Stock It's true that DAL stock is fairly cheap right now. The forward price-to-earnings multiple is at a mere 7x. What's more, the company has a decent dividend yield, at about 2.9%, and there continues to be strong cash flow. Last year, that came to about $6.9 billion. * 7 Stocks at Risk of the Global Smartphone Slowdown Wall Street is also upbeat on Delta Airlines stock, with the average price target at $67. This assumes about 37% potential upside from current levels. No doubt, this is all encouraging. But I still think there should be caution with DAL stock. Again, it's far from clear how the shutdown will turn out and there may be more competitive pressures across the airline industry. In other words, DAL stock could stay cheap, at least for the near term. Tom Taulli is the author of High-Profit IPO Strategies, All About Commodities and All About Short Selling.
