    It appears that there is a tightening of crew member security bypass privileges for pilots in transit and FedEx/UPS freight pilots. At first I thought it was an old thread but this appears to be current. Apparently that KCM/Precheck/Military propaganda is just that, an attempt to conceal the reality of what is going on.

    It references a "new TSA boss". Did somebody put Pissy out of our misery?

    Something about the post doesn't add up. That would mean that commuting flight attendants would have their liquids seized. That would be great if they had to meet the same screening criteria as the rest of us, but that will never "fly".

    Define TSA in 20 words or less. :rolleyes:

    God, I hope not. Wouldn't have been anywhere near slow or painful enough. I consider testicular cancer metastasizing to the prostate and spine and denial of pain medication to be barely acceptable for the likes of Pissy.

    Our endowment will soon be funding a Jack Kevorkian Chair of Euthanasia. I'll put your name in for it.

    I'm guessing since it's in the Cargo forum and the OP is an MD-11 driver, the TSA is talking about FedEx, UPS, etc. pilots. Any time one of them is going through security in a passenger terminal, it's a given that they are deadheading or riding the jumpseat.

    That is my read. Primarily affects freight pilots and some airline pilots traveling as pax.

    I don't want Pissy euthanized. I want him to suffer to the bitter end, then send him straight to (expletive deleted).

    That's why we'll put you in charge of the process. :)
