|Quoting VirginFlyer (Reply 101):|
What would be interesting to know is of the 652 offloads, how many were from international flights and how many from domestic, and also how many were offloaded on suspicion of planning to unlawfully interfere with the flight, versus how many were offloaded on suspicion of travelling to join a terror group.
Do you think a person already flagged as potentially traveling elsewhere "to join a terror group" should only be prevented from flying on international flights? Or, should they be prevented from flying on all flights? They are the same 'flagged' individual - they pose the same risk / threat to national security - whether they are on the CBR
domestic sector of their journey or on the SYD
international sector of their journey (random routing example).
Consider a person "planning to unlawfully interfere with the flight" and another person "travelling to join a terror group" - should one be allowed to fly and the other not? Or, should they both be prohibited from flying? I would not want to be on a flight with either.
My agenda... LOL
I have read a lot of ridiculous comments in these threads but that is near the top!
You tell me who the one with the agenda is; Those against domestic flight ID
checks because it would waste their valuable time? Those against domestic flight ID
checks because it would cost some money to implement? Those against domestic flight ID
checks because either their staff or themselves could no longer arrive at the airport just twenty minutes before departure after a late finishing meeting? Or... Somebody like me who just supports the position of the AFP and security experts who call for ID
checks on domestic flights because ID
checks contribute towards security and therefore safety.

To spark things up again I think we need a couple more A340 and 747 flights in and out,
Are there any regularly scheduled A340s to SYD
And apart from QF
, the only other passenger 747 operator to SYD
now is TG
