In the airport, the family’s suitcases are too heavy, so they stuff some clothes into their carry-on baggage. They enter the line for security, but a child unclips a few zip-barriers separating the lines, and everybody gets scrambled. Greg’s family ends up at the back of the line. They go through security and are delayed again by somebody who has to remove all of his metal piercings. Manny then gets his stuffed animal stuck in an escalator, delaying them more. As a result, the family panic, and grab their luggage. They use a vehicle for handicapped people to get to their gate in time. It turns out their flight is delayed. Greg goes to dry his sock but destroys it while doing so. He hears that the flight is overbooked, but Susan Heffley (Greg’s mom) stops him from volunteering to get off the plane in exchange of an airport hotel stay and $300 (later increased to $500). A replacement crew for the plane is required and they wait one last time, and then finally board.
