    If you don't like the bomb you got for Christmas, it appears you'll have plenty of time to send it back ...

    Air Cargo World: TSA axes Dec. 31 screening deadline

    Sounds like TSA's handling of the announcement was just another everyday cluster****. :rolleyes:

    So TSA can sexually assault people without cause but inspecting cargo is just to damn hard for TSA's finest.

    I've posted this before, I'll post it again. Cargo is not screened. International or domestic it is not screened.

    TSA is literally looking for explosives that might be hidden inside the folds of the labia and scrotum, and yet full-sized bombs could literally be loaded into the cargo holds of passenger planes and no one would know. Well, until a plane fell out of the sky.

    Of course, since planes aren't falling out of the sky with this shocking news, it's obvious that air travel is not the high-value target that TSA claims it to be, and yet they continue to electronically strip search and fondle millions of passengers a day.

    I guess bombs in passenger plane cargo holds isn't a significant problem. Oh, wait...

    Speaking from a strictly selfish standpoint, should I be concerned about taking a 747-combo on my next TATL? Is there slightly more risk on an aircraft that is known to carry cargo than one that does not? I have zero knowledge when it comes to these risks...

    In my own opinion, there is negligible risk.

    Of course, your own comfort level should dictate what one does.

    If it were a risk, it would have already happened recently. The fact that it hasn't in light of cargo screening being nearly non-existent compared to passenger screening indicates the risk approaches zero.

    Like with other scenarios we regularly discuss here, you are more likely to die in a car accident en route to the airport.
