Another controversy arrived from this, because it could cause raised airfare charges for passengers, in trade for their increased safety. Personally, this sounds like a pretty good deal, but I do understand the outrage about it. Chances are it will still be cheaper than gas prices for driving to your destination, and an improved sense of security at the same time.
One thought I have on this is why the airports are only now, for spring break, increasing these security measures? It seems like after the underwear bombing attempt, they would be doing these things year-round on every single flight, not just during times of increased travel. Feel free to leave any thoughts you may have about this.
