I have to wonder about the brilliance of the TSA
people examining luggage.
Last month I returned from Germany on NW
. After clearing customs in DTW
, you turn your luggage over to the TSA
if you have a connecting flight.
I understand the need to examine new luggage entering the country. My thing is this. I was connecting to a flight on a Saab 340 to TOL
, a 49 mile flight. The TSA
agent chose to open my suitcase. I was going on a flight that's 20 minutes and on an airplane that holds 30 people.
If you're going to open luggage, let's be opening it for someone alot more suspicious. Let's not be wasting time with someone connecting to a twin engine turbo prop. Maybe someone going on a farther flight on a much larger aircraft.
