Lufthansa Hostage-Taking Ends After Brief Standoff
Since when are razor blades allowed in carry on luggage? Doesn't say much for Munich's security.
Absolutely! And it's hard to believe that the thorough German security folks would miss a razor being carried onto a plane.
A razor blade is pretty small - and hard to do any real damage (not to underestimate the FA distress)
But they get the water every time
A razor blade can inflict lethal damage. Obviously a 50 y.o. FA would be old enough to be very familiar with them.
Yes, I said it is hard to do real damage, not impossible.
the thing is, I can see how it would be easy to overlook a single razor blade depending on how it is oriented when scanned, but then again I've had very short and dull nail cleaners attached to a nail,clipper detected so maybe the technology is better than I thinkI think
Sadly, I think the danger of dying quickly from a choke hold is a faster/greater danger.
A razor blade held to a person's neck along the jugular vein is a very dangerous weapon. Glad it ended quickly and safely for the FA, and I hope the perp gets a lifelong jail cell to think about the suffering he might have caused.
You bet! My experience with German security is that if they see one questionable item when they x-ray your carry-on, they will take everything out of your carry-on during their search. In that respect, they're much more thorough than TSA.
When I last went through FRA security ~3 weeks ago, they also "fixed" the walk-through so that everyone was "buzzed", and required a personal search. What impressed me about this is the fact that they could conduct such a large security exercise in a timely manner, without much extra waiting. With TSA, this would have created a waiting line that would have wrapped around the airport!
I have seen them use a remote control of sorts (in pocket) where they "buzz" people they deem suspicious.
Pretty ridiculous if you ask me.
