    Wonder why they cutting the number of random pat downs

    Giving into the fringe what else? The same fringe that will demand people's jobs when someone slips through due to preserving our "liberty" You have weakened us to prove a point. Shame. Not to mention opt out day was supposed to be people refusing to go through the scanners which clearly has not happened.

    I think that some people realized they might miss their flights - and - heaven forbid - turkey! :) I agree that so far it's a bit of a bust - but - busiest time hasn't happened yet - wait until 4:30 or so onwards...then it would be interesting to see what happens.

    From various sources & reports from the airports, it looks like NOOD is becoming a National no fly day. I'm getting reports of lots of empty seats on what should be full flights. Maybe the airlines will take notice.

    On a side note last night Tues according to our computer the US system load factor 80% Monday night 83% & I recall many days much higher loads.

    Of what? That thanks to this foolish propaganda people are driving and not flying? Great job. When the bag fees and surcharges go up we can all rejoice.

    I was at the checkpoints all day yesterday and today. Spending most of my time at the American Checkpoint where the AIT is at LGA. Based on the direct numbers taken for the WTMD and AIT the number of Opt Out was only 1% which is the normal. While there were some lines at AirTran and Delta, wait times never exceeded 20 minutes. People were very complimentary and there were a few who went through other lanes and came behind to watch the AIT in action and pat downs who commented they didn't see what the big concern was.

    We did have one person who came through American in a T-Shirt and shorts but he didn't go the AIT and didn't alarm the WTMD so he didn't need to be patted down so the most he did was get himself on TV.

    AITs were not closed unless during a tour change. Air Travel is said to be in a 3% increase. All planes were full out of LGA.

    There is no reduction of random pat downs.
