    Greetings everyone, I happened onto TUG after reading a recent news piece about former TSA agent in Florida who was caught stuffing an iPad into his pants. Go to see justice served...sorta.

    As for me, I spent nearly 12 years at United Airlines in an operational capacity (flight dispatch & station operations). I finally had to get out as the airline was failing and there was no future.

    I have been writing and sharing my opinion on aviation security since 2005 at www.the6thfloor.com filed under Aviation "in"Security. It's just amazing to see what the TSA is getting away with. I have experience some of it first hand and it's appalling!

    Glad to have found TUG and hopefully I can contribute.

    I figure now that I am some 5 years removed from the airlines anything I say (or have said via my website) can no longer come back to bite me in the backside. I love the jobs I held, have many, many stories but now that I am removed I must live vicariously through my sister who is still employed as a flight attendant.

    Welcome aboard! I'm pleased to see that we have a former airline employee, especially one from UA. I'm a 1K with them, so I've met a number of GSCs around the country. Luckily, I've never had to enlist their help at the checkpoint (Fingers crossed).
