TSA says it is not responsible for checking for animals, only weapons and explosives
...Thousands Standing Around. Gotta love it. I cannot imagine what the bag screener saw as it went through the x-ray machine or better yet what he/she thought. Hmmmmm..., shoes, hair dryer, toothbrush, 2 bird skeletons, deoderant...LOL! Things like this have both a positive and negative effect.
Positive effect: The question of who is liable for an incident like this is taken into consideration with (hopefully) a final decision being made and this problem not happening again in the future.
Negative effect: Really pissed off customers, vouchers for the inconvenience of having a bird fly around the cabin and crap on their head. Potential of lawsuits for exposing customers to Bird Flu. If it is decided that the airline is responsible for checking all the bags, we will have more lines for folks to wait on so the bags can be checked along with yet another stupid question to answer at check in "...okay, and do you have any animals inside your carry on luggage that you may have packed other than a dog or cat that can escape from your bag and ruin the flight for the other 155 customers on boar? No? Okay, lets go ahead and print your boarding pass...".
I hope this customer gets nailed by the ASPCA for animal cruelty, is forced to pay a HUGE fine, forced to pay back all the monitary debts incurred by his/her stupidity (including vouchers, civil suits, etc.) and then has to write a thoughtful hand-written letter of appology to all customers and crewmembers onboard this flight along with make a public statement for all the world to see how much of a dumb ass he/she really is. AND
if the person is not a citizen of the US should be sent back to PR
and black listed.
