“Empty your Pockets” “Shoes off” “Laptops out”
British Airways Chairman Martin Broughton says there are redundant and unnecessary procedures that the U.S. TSA asks International airports to perform for all U.S. bound flights especially since travelers have already cleared security once. Broughton says, “The practice of forcing people to take off their shoes and have their laptops checked separately in security lines should be ditched.” Broughton also went onto say, “America does not do internally a lot of the things they demand that we do.” If you have flown internationally lately you will see first hand how relaxed and laid back security is at those airports compared to what is the norm at U.S. airports.
Do you agree with Chairman Broughton? Are the procedures that are used daily in U.S. airports just part of a dog and pony show to make you feel safe?
