Christmas Day travelers were delayed getting to their destinations after a security breach at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport.

TSA screeners said a passenger skipped going through a secondary security checkpoint inside Terminal B on Saturday.

The issue forced all passengers to be rescreened, including those who were already aboard American Eagle flights.

Sixty-five flights were delayed, for 30 minutes up to as much as two hours. An airport spokesman said 40 flights coming into DFW were also delayed because of the issue.

The flights finally took off after they were all searched.

The TSA and the airport did not provide any specifics on the passenger who caused the delays.
