Apparently its not the data on the lap top they are worried about. Its the ability to turn the lap top into an I.e.d. that is passable through
I initially had the same thought. Bring your memory stick and hit up the nearest walmart for a cheap laptop.
Which is still a feasible workaround.
I would think with all the bomb sniffing electronic gadgets they have at their disposal ,you could put it on a conveyer belt and scan it before
I'm just glad I don't have a reason to fly,the last time I was on a plane was the mid eighties i don't think my yoyo would make it along nowadays..
They would label it a garrote.
They can seal that explosive into a laptop and it will not be able to be detected by a dog. The thing is, this is a real threat, they have found
laptops that were bombs. People who fly think they have rights to carry their electronic devices, they don't. The airlines are responsible for the
safety of all their passengers, they are supposed to try to identify all threats. It is not possible to identify all of them though, but if they do
not try to comply they are liable.
People are going to have to learn that all this irrational behavior on their part and the crazy lawsuits will just be passed on to customers. Right
now, I bet all airlines are thinking of raising their tickets a hundred bucks or more just because of a a half dozen incidents where people would not
get off the plane when asked. People are nuts, any costs are passed on to the customer. When someone gets extra money to give up a seat because the
flight is overbooked, that extra cost is added to everyone's ticket in a small percentage. When a flight gets turned back because someone is being
disruptive, the cost is passed on to customers. Flights are canceled because of storms, the losses are tacked onto ticket prices. Since this is
happening on all airlines, all rates are higher to cover these things.
People think they are sticking it to the airlines when in actuality, they are sticking it to the people flying on the airlines.
We have a serious problem with consensus of the time. If people keep harrassing the airlines they will all jump up their tickets a hundred bucks to
cover the hastle, they do not have to do this together, one will raise their price and others will just follow the leader. If people do not like it,
then they can drive. There is no law that says airlines have to lose a cent.
People are going to mess everything up with their inpatients and greed and chaotic attitude. Others who support the people starting the chaos will
wind up with higher airfares. There will be some new ticket contracts written up within the next month or so where customers rights will be lessened.
If they are refused, how are people going to get to where they are going? All airlines will be doing this. These rules are already in place,
clarifying them and denying someone from flying will be outlined legally and nobody will be able to contest it shortly, to do so will make them lose
their place and be put on a no fly list for possible terrorist activities.
