NYC Now Entirely NoS'd

    I regret to inform that all terminals at all three NYC airports (JFK, LGA, EWR) are now equipped with NoS. JFK is BKSX, while LGA and EWR are MMW ATD. The final straw was C & D at LGA (US & DL), which are easily avoided by SDOO, and airside transfer is available between C & D to assist that.

    Did you get any more metal objects through the scanners? :D

    Are the WTMDs getting any use now? It sounds as though the NoS has pretty much become the predominant device and that the sheeple have grown accustomed to assuming the position.

    The non-sheeple have quit flying.

    It is like you were reading my mind. Not an hour ago I sent all of my so called representatives an email telling them that I am nearly at my 2 year anniversary of being denied air travel by the US government.

    Well at this point I think I will just avoid 2 of the largest consumer dive shows in the country. Which once I tell them not coming should cause some waves as that means they loose 2 booths and a presenter.

    Question JFK AA Premium Services/ Elite Line have a chance at non-NOS? Reason I ask is im gearing up for a trip to Truk in 2014 and can route the award ticket through JFK or LAX. Would prefer JFK as I could get the slightly longer CX flight.

    I was disappointed to hear this news-- LGA was the last safe airport, at least on UA & DL.

    When I flew through LGA three weeks ago (LGA-PWM), the checkpoint I used near the US ticket counters had two WTMDs, and nothing else. Seemed way too small for MMW... :(

    The only area at AA T8 at JFK without the NoS is the Pre-Check lane. All other lanes have the backscatter :mad:

    Though I have gone through when the BKSX is closed, and WTMD is the only thing open. Of course, you can also declare a medical issue, and avoid the grope. It's worked for me six times in the past month.

    Methinks "medical issue" is beginning to catch on. Funny thing is that when WBI first started appearing, I advocated wearing a sling through the checkpoint. Time has passed and now I do truly have rotator cuff issues in both shoulders and can't raise my arms. But I'd still use the sling anyway as I fear screeners might soon start to get aggressive on this issue.

    If they make you get up out of a wheelchair and walk without Jesus's healing touching, what's an arm sling?

    I stay away, because my version of activist involves major trauma and ICU/traction.
