If you give people something to gripe about, some always will.
Others go in looking for a fight because they are on a crusade and trying to make a point.
Ultimately though, they have no leg to stand on. The Contract of Carriage for an airline, which you agree to when you purchase your ticket, gives them
the right to do any type of search they wish to you. You waive your rights as part of the contract between you and the airlines, to travel as their
The response to this is typically, “well I have to fly”, but the truth is flying is not a right, its a privilege. You are traveling as a guest of
a company, and have agreed to their terms for that trip including the searches. Nobody forces you to fly, and its really not the airlines fault if you
need to be somewhere in a big hurry (aka an emergency on your part, does not make an emergency on their part).
Others will gripe that they have to fly because of their job, but again, no one forced them to take a job that involved airline travel, and if they do
not wish to comply with the airlines, they can get another job that does not require traveling, or they can take the company private jet . If
their job forces them to fly, that is neither the airlines, nor the governments fault, and has no bearing on the two party contract you form with the
airlines on receipt of your ticket.
