Flying during Thanksgiving holiday? Tell us about it
Talk of humiliating body scans and invasive pat-downs is adding stress for holiday travelers nationwide, even discouraging some from flying.
"This makes you feel like a criminal," said Richard Figg, 78, who was being patted down Monday before leaving on a flight from Tampa to Austin, Texas.
Anyone who is unable, or refuses, to go through the scanning machines will go through a pat-down.
With Thanksgiving travel time about to get in full gear (major jams/headaches), we would love to hear about your experiences with TSA at the airport. We want to hear whether you protested a patdown, and if so, what happens. If you are forced to endure a patdown, tell us how it went.
Post your comments here after traveling or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks much and happy traveling.
