ATA Flight Cancelled Due To Knives Found

Thu Dec 20, 2001 2:34 am

I just found this out today that a ATA flight from EWR-MDW was cancelled due to two people had knifes in their luggage. ATA flight 273 was cancelled due to there were knives found during a hand search in the terminal after the men had went through security checkpionts. No charges were filed against them.

Mmm. Glad to see the post-screening searches are doing some good. I was on ATA last week, and they very visibly conducted the searches, even at the gate.

I was on an ATA flight last Thursday and they hand searched a group of people but another group (which I was on) just continued directly to the plane. In my opinion all of the pax should be searched.
