Why does someone always have to be fired? As a manager at my company I feel retraining everyone is more important than firing someone. Constant evolution and training is required in every job. I dont want my work force to be scared of being fired, I would rather learn and then, play on. The one who makes the mistake will never make the same misatke or anywhere near as close once you have been through the retraining.

Well spotted by the cabin crew member.
It seems that security/boarding agents has a weak spot for confronting young children. Staff need to be confident with their duties and not just assume that the child is travelling with the adult in front. Depending on the surrounding environment, if it is a mass crowd of passengers in a congested area then a child could easily slip under the radar, but in a well organised spacious terminal there is no excuse.
I wonder how many kids have joined this new trendy club?

Mistakes happen. If you fired everyone for making a mistake then you'd quickly run out of people to employ. Learn and move on. It builds confidence in your team and people are more open about admitting mistakes helping everyone to learn from them. Create a culture of blame and sacking and before long everyone is more interested in covering up for work mates than actually concentrating on the job. Poor managers sack. Good managers learn and have a better team.

Quoting PHX787 (Reply 1): Again....just how?! That's just absolutely nuts. Someone has to be fired or something. Who knows what could've been smuggled.
Airport Security is a poor concept vaguely aimed at cool down passengers in making them believe that they're safe in an airport... Everybody in the commercial aviation business knows perfectly that no security can assure a decent protection against anything at all... End of story.

Having been through Egyptian security, lax is one way I'd describe it. Whilst minor in comparison, I forgot about a bottle of suncream, water & shower gel in my bag (all over 100ml) and got it all through 2 stages of security. Noone seemed to be paying attention.
