Flight crews have to go through the same screening lines at airports that we do. Baggage handlers and cabin cleaners do not. An elderly lady who caused a security breach shut down the Austin airport for two hours while they searched planes for anything she might have snuck on board, but cabin cleaners get no screening? Cabin cleaners that go onto planes and could leave anything at any time?
A pilot who exposed the TSA practice is in trouble, and authorities came to his home to take his gun – the one he packs in the cockpit as his job.
The mighty TSA – you’ll do what we tell you or you’ll walk to Grandma’s. No criticism of our procedures allowed.
