Final Four: Expect Airport Madness
Hopefully it won't look like this.
At least one airline is telling passengers that if they hope to leave Houston tomorrow, they better get their butts to the airport early.
An expected rush of Final Four evacuees -- some happy, some crushed -- could mean long lines at security, ticket counters and, perhaps most importantly, Starbucks.
Frontier Airlines has called passengers who have a 6 a.m. flight tomorrow, for instance,
and has left a recorded message (It was a real, live person!) telling them to get to the airport no later than 4 a.m.
"If you don't get there at least two hours before your flight leaves, you WILL miss your flight," the message says. Passengers are urged to do as much online pre-flight planning and bag checking and everything as possible.

Couple the Final Four exodus with Southwest's ongoing troubles with cancellations, and it could add up to a lot of fun.
Especially if your team lost the night before.
