New York, NY (PRWEB) November 07, 2012
On November 7, 2012, travel company Surf Patch released a statement in response to a Wall Street Journal article about how the inconsistency of airport security makes it impossible to fly clear of hassle.
According to the Wall Street Journal article, “the Transportation Security Administration has consistently been inconsistent.” The article states that sometimes you may be able to walk through a scanner with your wallet and shoes on, and another trip you might have to fork over the wallet and ditch the shoes.
According to the TSA, “randomness and layers of security are important to protecting airplanes and travelers.” The article states that the security measures taken at airports can vary by city, checkpoint, and screener. According to an American Airlines spokesperson “the largest U.S. carrier to South America, said some countries don't search for liquids and gels to U.S. standards, and so a special check has to be made at boarding of U.S.-bound flights.” According to the article passengers find the randomness to be unnecessary and a big hassle.
Travel company Surf Patch sympathizes with travelers and understands how inconvenient TSA’s inconsistencies can be. World traveler Takara Licausi stated, “Random and inconsistent checks can be a hassle, as well as an inconvenience when attempting to fly clear of airport security clutter. I understand the TSA trying to be random as a security measure, but there needs to be a faster and more efficient way to be able to pass through checkpoints.”
