First off, that's not “entrapment”. Entrapment is when an agent of some type incites/entices you to do something that you would have never done,
or thought of doing, then arrests you for it.
For example, if an undercover police officer walked up to you and told you they'd pay you $100 to spraypaint a wall, then arrested you for criminal
mischief. That would be entrapment.
The Constitution only guarantees you the right to “locomotion”, which means the ability to travel from one place to the next. It does not
guarantee you the manner of that locomotion, nor that there may not be additional laws, statutes, contracts, or regulations regarding that particular
type of locomotion. This is why they cannot restrict you from riding in a personally owned car, but they can restrict you from operating it.
Now, The operator of that vehicle can add additional rules that you must comply with, at their discretion, and as long as there is another means of
movement, your rights to locomotion have not been violated. Even walking is considered a means of “locomotion”, so your rights to move are never
As an example, you can walk on an expressway if there is no other reasonable means to get from point A to point B. If there is a side street that is
reasonably close the expressway, then they can prohibit your movement on the expressway, but if there is not, and a police officer stops you, he is
violating your Constitutional Right to Locomotion.
Your rights regarding flying simply come down to the fact that there are other “reasonable” means available to you, and you agreed to a contract
with the airlines to waive your rights to unreasonable search and seizure.
