On November 22, 2012, travel company Surf Patch released a statement following a Bloomberg Businessweek article on how TSA and current airport is making it harder for passengers to fly clear of hassle and worry.
According to the Bloomberg Businessweek article, “These days, the TSA’s major role appears to be to make plane trips more unpleasant.” The article states that the TSA is paying too much focus and energy on terrorist threats, when the TSA has not spotted a single terrorist trying to board a plane in the U.S. The article mentions that despite this, TSA still has an $8 billion budget, which leaves for too many officers and too little to do for them. The article says that the inconveniences of the airports, posed by TSA, are pushing more people to take to the roads this holiday season.
According to the article, “To make flying as dangerous as using a car, a four-plane disaster on the scale of 9/11 would have to occur every month.” A Cornell University study showed that switching from air to road transportation since the TSA was put into action, increased driving fatalities a month by 242. The article urges for airports security to be less of a hassle this holiday season, it may save more lives that the TSA aims to save.
Travel company Surf Patch understands the important of helping passengers fly clear during the holidays. World traveler Takara Licausi states, “As a frequent flyer, I know the difficulties of passing through airport security checkpoints. Much can be done to improve the way the passengers get through airport security, in order to make their flight experience safe, easy, and stress free.”
