Just remember that the "system works"!!
Unfortunately the TSA still controls the policies that the screeners operate under. SFO with its private screening force uses the same backscatter machines and pat down policies and the same will be true in Orlando.
The big gain is that you can get more accountability from a private contractor via a properly worded contract then a federal agency with a massive bureacracy the is essentially accountable to no one.
You also generally get more efficiency. Pretty much every time I am at the airport, I see a TSA agent or two standing around with nothing to do or barking orders at the line. A private contractor will cut unnecessary staff. Hopefully, a few good examples will help lead to less waste in the TSA (or its complete disbanding).
Also, they will have to be responsive to traveler complaints in a way that no government bureaucracy ever will. Their contract is always at risk, compared to the TSA's mandate.
