Default Liquid Bombs?

Can you believe this? Do you think this new plot to kill us will affect the industry yet again?

I wish they would tell us the liquid chemical they were planning on using.

In typical TSA fashion, they are blowing the issue way out of proportion. What really bugs me is that "passengers may not bring any liquids of any kind onboard an aircraft." That is total BS! Chemicals like ammonia nitrate (used in fertilizer) mixed with something like gasoline looks a whole lot different than a starbucks coffee!
I can only hope these restrictions are lifted before more damage is done.

Man, TSA and especially CNN sure do a good job on scaring the American public when it comes to transportation. Now everybody are going to do the number 2 in their pants for a few weeks until everything goes back to normal.

If leaving your hair gel behind will prevent another Pan Am , it is a very small price to pay.
By the way, you could get up a 1/2 hour earlier and drink your expresso on the way to the airport.
It's a different world. Lots of crazies with access.
Stay alert! Famous last words are "I didn't think it would happen to me".

Default All they have to do is check it.

Why can't the airlines just make everybody check everything. No lines at the x-ray and it won't take an hour to load a 737. It's a win for everybody except when your luggage gets lost.

Default TSA and Oil

If oil hits $100 a barrel or more and TSA scares away pax you might as well brace for another 911 style industry slowdown.
