However, now look at the terms and conditions of using the airport, port, or airline that you are travelling on.
These terms and conditions state that you agree to subject yourself to security procedures as required by those carriers and ports of entry/exit, hence overriding the passport as you freely agree to the terms and conditions imposed when you use those services (IE airport, port, airline etc).
Nice try, but irrelevant.
You need to check out the "General Conditions of Carriage for Passengers and Baggage" on your airline's website. For example, BA's can be found at www.britishairways.com...
However, there are some very important points in that document too.edit on 3-12-2010 by babybunnies because: (no reason given)
