  • Supreme Court won’t hear appeal on TSA scanning
    On Monday, the Supreme Court shot down an appeal by blogger Jonathan Corbett to hear a case alleging that Transportation Security Administration screening tactics violate the Fourth Amendment. The 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta formerly claimed it did not have authority to review a TSA order. Corbett runs a blog titled, "TSA Out of Our Pants!"

  • Is it fair for VIPs to cut TSA security lines?
    Sen. Ben Nelson, D-Neb., wants to get rid of priority boarding for frequent fliers because the lines are operated by taxpayer-funded security officials. "All passengers pay the same fee in their airline tickets to cover the cost of the (TSA) screenings regardless of ticket class," says the senator’s website. Consumer advocate Ed Perkins says if airlines want to pay TSA more to expedite VIPs, it is their call. In Travel blog (10/1) sm_share.gifLinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story

    National Transportation Safety Board Chairman Deborah Hersman told a crowd last month at an International Society of Air Safety Investigators (ISASI) meeting that safety investigators must be able to examine new sources of information such as geographic information systems. "Today, there are four major tools in aviation safety’s 21st century toolkit: continued emphasis on forensics, data collection and analysis, new and emerging technologies and, to be sure, international cooperation," she said.

  • IATA raises global airline profit forecast
    The International Air Transport Association has raised its 2012 profit forecast for the world’s airlines, according to a report. Global carriers are expected to show $4.1 billion in profits, up from the $3 billion predicted earlier this year. The change is a result of steady demand in Asia and capacity-reducing measures increasing margins for North American airlines.
