Malfunctioning X-ray equipment used to screen carry-on baggage required overnight maintenance at the Spokane International Airport this week, leading to warnings of long lines from Transportation Security Administration and airport officials.

By Wednesday afternoon, all machines were online and no reports of missed flights were received, said Lorie Dankers, a TSA spokeswoman.

Dankers credited Spokane travelers with heeding calls to arrive early and noted that wait times didn’t exceed 13 minutes at the security check point for concourses A and B.
