Passenger decides security is lax, British Airways flight delayed
Yes, the world has officially gone horse-shit mad. As if it wasn't bad enough that men with bombs in their undercrackers want to blow planes up, or that governments around the world have capitulated in fear and heaped more security on passengers, but now passengers themselves can decide what level of security is acceptable.
A London-bound British Airways plane was delayed earlier following a customer complaint about poor airport security. The plane was searched thoroughly after all passengers on the aircraft disembarked to go through security again at Abu Dhabi airport.
The reason? A female passenger had reportedly told the captain she was unhappy with the level of airport security. According to another passenger, the woman went to the captain and informed him the member of staff responsible for viewing the x-rays screens was paying no attention while talking on his mobile phone. British Airways has only confirmed that customers were asked to disembark to complete secondary security checks in Abu Dhabi.
