Heres the deal, if you hate SSSSS, buy round trip tickets
Not necessarily true. I flew SVG
over Easter of 2002. On my return I was the lucky winner of, Selectee. This was a RT ticket, bought about 6 weeks in advance with a credit card. I also had a KLM FF
-card. All of these factors should have worked to my advantage, but didn't...so what? I didn't care. My checked bags got an extra tag on them, so they knew they had to be screened (this was before all bags got screened), and also at the gate, they had to manually search my carry on.
To those that say that "80 year old little old ladies, paraplegics or little kids can't be terrorists", you are wrong.

in my hand when I get there. My shoes are untied, with the laces just stuck inside. When I get to the belt, I whip out my laptop, put it on a tray, put my bag and coat on another. Then I send my shoes, the bag, then the laptop. That way, on the other side, I'll get my shoes on, then my coat, and I already have the bag open and ready when the laptop comes along. Doesn't bother me a bit (except for the one time I forgot a 5/8" wrench in my pocket after working on my car, that they confiscated).
