One of the most common complaints we hear about on the news is the headaches that individuals face at airports across the United States. We always hear about situations that have caused long and numerous delays at airports because of potential flight risks. This has caused tons of problems for consumers as they become force to either cancel or reschedule their flight plans. It makes us wonder if the idea of clear airport security is just a fantasy.
We have to ask ourselves while we know that we always have to be on the watch for jeopardy in order to perhaps save our lives, we also don’t want to be put into position where our security can be easily mishandled. Many people have reported about the treatment they get from stingy security and that’s something that should not be stomached. While it is logical that everybody needs to be checked to ensure they pose no risk, it is also total disrespect for an individual who sets no risk.
It brings a lot of fear to airline passengers that airport security is not taking proper care of their concerns about looking at the different probable security breaches. It makes the individuals who hate flying to begin with lean towards the possibility of never wanting to get on a plane ride. But there are solutions coming forth that may lead those individuals to have second thoughts.
The positive is new programs have been entering the picture that can help make the lives of continual travelers less demanding. CLEAR is one such program that allows individuals for a yearly price, the alternative of bypassing difficult airline lines. The consumer provides their information to be recorded onto a card that is read at an airport that uses the system. The card with the information is then scanned and immediately you are confirmed that you are safe to get onto the plane. While you still have to face the standard TSA security pat-down, this provides a much welcome comfort to those who have tight time management.
It is my hope that if more options come into the discussion, we can not only stop danger at the airport but we can also help make passengers more calm. While we know that the risk of terrorism is never going to leave anytime soon, we have to keep watchful eyes on every risk and take them very seriously. Maybe we will one day reach a point where we do not view airline security in an uncertain light. However, until we reach that point everybody from the passengers to security to the airlines have to come up with useful policies to prevent any threats from taking shape.
