Transportation Security Administration to allow knives, sporting gear on planes
Protect our skies
As a flight attendant for 14 years and Local Union President of three bases, I am very concerned over the recent TSA decision that will allow knives back into the aircraft cabin [“Small knives, sporting gear to be allowed on planes,” News, March 6].
Flight attendants are responsible for the safety and security of the passengers in the cabin. Knowing there could be dangerous concealed weapons onboard makes me extremely frightened, along with my co-workers. All it takes is the wrong person at the wrong time to create a disaster.
We need to protect our skies. No knives on planes! Over the past 10 years, the United States has become the leader in aviation security and is the safest, most efficient aviation transportation system in the world. Let’s continue being the safest in the skies!
