Ok.. This probably belongs in the hobby forum (so sue me) but it will probably get a better response here..

I collect safety cards, as do many others here.. The question: With the new random searches, what happens if you take a card (or 2) off the plane, go to your connection gate, get searched, and they find them? Do you just say the F/A gave them to you? Or what..

My bro just came home a week ago from PDX.. Flew PDX-MSP-FNT... Well, the PDX-MSP was on a A320 (NW) and had the newest card on there.. He asked the f/a, she gave him one (in great GREAT condition) and he went to the gate for MSP-FNT.. Well, he got searched.. They didn't see it, or they did and didn't care.. But if I (or someone I know that is getting them) DOES get stopped, what should be said?

Thanks a lot!

Or, actually, also, have any of YOU gotten stopped with them, and if so, what did you do?

Just tell them that the F/A gave it to you. If they ever get suspicious then they should find whoever gave it to you and ask them. I never thought of something like this would happen but it didn't to me and I hope it never does.

I am a flight attendant and at many times, passengers, especially teenage boys will come to me and ask me if i have extra emergency cards, and i give them out most of the time. well, i dont think they should be a big deal if they find them out with you, just make sure to place them in a file with documents if you had some papers with you when you are traveling or place them in one of your magazines. I dont know what is the penalty for this actually and never thought about it

Hehe. My friend got me like 5 safety cards! He doesn't really care for Airliners, but I do and asked him to get me some. He got me like 2 from each plane. That would suck if you get caught and have to return them or something. I don't think they'll care much.

I am a Passenger Service Agent in LAS.
I am sometimes assigned to the gate to do random searches. Believe me, I only look for dangerous items which could be used as a weapon on the flight.

An F/A caught me red handed on a DL MD-88. She told me always to ask an F/A because they have extras for the safety demonstration and are usually always in mint condition.

Security wouldn't care. They are not airline employees and could care less about the safety cards as having them is not a security violation.

The only thing I would suggest is to ask a F/A for one since F/As or cabin cleaning crews do not always have time to look for missing safety cards. It is a regulation that there must be a safety card in each seat back pocket and a missing one carries a fine to the carrier.

I was hand inspected at DFW by a Continental Agent. She saw the DL 727 card I had, but didn't bat an eye at it.

Either she didn't care that I had it, or did not care because it belonged to a competitor  Big grin

Security shouldn't care, but the airline might. They are required "safety equipment" on the aircraft. You are breaking the law if you steal one. You are putting the airline at risk by removing them. Go ahead and ask the Flight Attendant for one. Better yet, go to their web sight and start asking for one.

My last job was at an Alaskan based Regional; we got many requests by mail, email, fax for our briefing cards. We always complied. We were quite proud of our cards. We hired a professional photographer and had a "Cabin Safety Specialist" form the FAA editing every step.

We are doing the same thing at the Airline I'm now working for.

If it's really an issue, take them on your last leg. To extend the topic further, what do you all think would be the reaction of security if they found four or five pilot training manuals in my luggage? (When I was a student pilot, I actually did carry them around with me frequently). Obviously, it isn't a crime to carry training materials aboard aircraft, I'm just wondering what the reaction would be.
