  • Debate over TSA knife rule revision not letting up
    The Transportation Security Administration's latest move to allow some small pocketknives on planes has sparked outrage, though the intent of the new rule was to focus less on physical items and more on terrorists' threats. More discussion is expected at a House Homeland Security subcommittee hearing today. "You have a 90-year-old grandma, you’re going to strip-search her, and then you’re going to allow someone to carry on a knife? They’re not consistent in their approach toward security," Jeff Addicott, director of the Center for Terrorism Law at St. Mary’s University in San Antonio, said of the TSA.

  • Airlines aim to switch computer language in ticket system
    The International Air Transport Association is hoping to use XML computer language for ticket sales as a way to personalize air travel. Third-party booking websites and other travel groups say the move could make it harder for consumers to compare prices. IATA Chief Executive Tony Tyler says the current language focuses on finding the lowest prices, but airlines want to cater pricing and ancillary services to customers, something that the old language inhibits. The Department of Transportation is accepting public comments on the proposal until April 1. USA Today (3/12) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story
