The working assumption by the US is a bomb.

If true, this will have a major impact on air travel, since the flight originated in Paris....a place already on heightened tensions for such heinous activity.

In recent attacks, bombs were smuggled through airports of somewhat less than sterling scrutiny.

My fear is that if you thought TSA lines were bad before, it is about to go beyond comparison.

And, I'm thinking international transfer of baggage and passengers might be going through a new filter; ie, a recognition that a chain is only as strong as its weakest link...and some of the big links may be flawed. It would not surprise me if all inbound cargo to the US went through initial re-screening again....or does it already?
