From that ever reputable source of news, The Onion:
Under the proposed reforms, the FAA would institute a strict ban on adult passengers, passengers 18 and under, international travelers, and domestic customers. A battery of questions and ID checks will be used to determine whether an individual is a pilot, flight attendant, or federal security officerâ€”the only humans who will be allowed to board an aircraft flying within or headed for the U.S.
Sounds like someone’s finally done a root cause analysis and come up with the obvious solution, a sensible policy from the US at last!
“Frankly, we’ve tried everything else,” Blakey said. “We’ve put up more metal detectors, searched carry-on luggage, and prohibited passengers from traveling with sharp objects. Yet passengers still somehow continue to find ways to breach security. Clearly, the passengers have to go.”
