New Security Screenings to Start for All US-Bound Airline Passengers

All passengers incoming flights to the United States will be subject to “new security screening procedures” from “airline employees” a government official said Wednesday.

“The security measures affect all individuals, international passengers and U.S. citizens, traveling to the United States from a last point of departure international location,” said Lisa Farbstein, a spokeswoman for the TSA. “These new measures will impact all flights from airports that serve as last points of departure locations to the United States.”

This announcement comes after five carriers — Air France, Cathay Pacific, EgyptAir, Emirates and Lufthansa — said that they would begin their own new security interviews beginning this Thursday. It also marks the end of a 120-day deadline given to airlines to meet new U.S. regulations following the ban on laptops in airplane cabins.

Roughly 2100 flights will be affected daily and the screening procedures will include “heightened screening of personal electronic devices” and stricter security procedures around planes and in airport terminals.

If I went off on every representative that was rude to me, I would be arguing all day long. It sounds like she got out of control and even after the problem was resolved. Furthermore, American Airlines employees are almost always very gracious. Now imagine if somebody blamed their problems on “Female Aggression”, “Black Male Aggression” or “Homosexual Aggression”. There would be an uproar from one end of the planet to the other, It seems to me that this woman has much hostility toward white men and used this opportunity to make them a punching bag.
