    It's also rather ridiculous that they have smoking areas in some airports past the security check point. If everyone was denied lighters and matches, how on earth is everyone smoking in these areas?

    When I heard this story this morning, I was a tad upset about the guy smoking in the plane bathroom but no charges are going to be filed. If it were you or me, we would have been hauled off to jail.
    Buy them from one of the shops. They took my water in Oakland (forgot it was there). Went to buy another one. $4.00?


    I would think that when it comes to things like homeland security, it would void diplomatic immunity.

      I use to fly a red eye from SFO to IAD every week for about a year and 8 months. When I boarded the flight I liked to pop a melatonin to help me sleep. Instead of buying a water at the airport every week, I just took a water bottle and filled it at a water fountain after I got through security

        But if we can go buy another lighter past the security point, that defeats the purpose of denying them.

        I've never seen lighters for sale in a terminal, not that I've had to look for one.

          Keep in mind though that this isn't our security that got bypassed.

          However, Qatar doesn't screen passengers to the same standard we do, and thus the risk is for those aboard flights from other countries to the U.S. But other than having security officers on the planes for US bound airways, we can't control the security situations in other countries.

          It goes without saying that we are still safe.

              I'm leaving for my flight in about an hour. If I see that guy sitting across from me, I'm taking him out.

                So, I (supposedly) found out why the plane landed at 7 but we didn't hear anything until 11:30. Apparently, when the plane landed, they basically quarantined everyone. Everyone was escorted off the plane, no bags, no cell phones, and were taken to a seperate section of the airport. Supposedly they were not allowed to leave untill 11ish.

                This is all from a fellow traveler, so I dont know how accurate this is, but it makes sense.
