    The flight attendant unions have also been pushing to be included in Known Crewmember as well. Here's a roll call of reasons why everyone should go through the same common sense screening to access the sterile area:

    In March 2007 a UA flight attendant was arrested in IAD for carrying a firearm aboard a flight from ATL.

    In May 2010 a Delta pilot was arrested in ATL after trying to transit the checkpoint with a firearm.

    In May 2010 a suicidal JetBlue pilot was taken into custody in the crew room in BOS; he had a firearm.

    In June 2010 a Delta flight attendant was arrested while trying to transit the checkpoint with a firearm in IND. She had bypassed the checkpoint in ATL the day before with the firearm. Airline employees in ATL can still bypass the checkpoint.

    In September 2011 a JetBlue pilot was arrested in LGA after trying to transit the checkpoint with a firearm.
