How does one find out if theyre on the list, and if youre on it, how do you get off the list?
The No Fly List is a list, created and maintained by the United States government's Terrorist Screening Center, of people who are not permitted to
board a commercial aircraft for travel in or out of the United States. The list has also been used to divert away from U.S. airspace aircraft not
flying to or from the U.S. The number of people on the list rises and falls according to threat and intelligence reporting. As of summer 2010, the
list contained about 8,500 names, according to the TSC. The list – along with the Secondary Security Screening Selection, which tags would-be
passengers for extra inspection – was created after the September 11 attacks.
