    Airports against lifting the liquid ban

    Wow...:confused: We spend all of this money on technologies that are still "not good enough."

    Let me see. If the liquid ban were lifted, then I could take a bottle of Coke or water thru the Security Screening. But that would deny the Airport Concessions the chance to sell me one after the screening. Now why would the airport operators not want me carrying a bottle thru the Security??????

    Me three....and note that if airport employees are not screened, they can bring the forbidden liquids to save money.

    If TSA employees can buy things at "regular" price, why does the TSA need more $$?? ;)

    The better question to the AOA is that why can't us passengers have the same kind of rigorous liquid screening that each of those $4 bottles of water at Hudson News get?
