  • TSA moves body scanners out of busy airports
    The Transportation Security Administration is taking units that use backscatter technology, also known as body scanners, out of busy airports and implementing the technology in airports that don’t have as much traffic. Taking their place in the busier airports are millimeter wave units, which serve the same purpose but use a different technology. ABC News (10/20) sm_share.gifLinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story

  • How far should airline regulation go?
    The U.S. Advisory Committee for Aviation Consumer Protection is raising questions about how involved government should be in flight regulation. "Airline passengers have rights, and they should be able to expect fair and reasonable treatment when booking a trip and when they fly," said Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood. But airline consultant Darryl Jenkins says it’s gone too far: "Over the last four years, we have seen a DOT that believes if one person complains about anything, that gives DOT both the right and the license to regulate."
