"the United States ordered airlines entering its airspace to ban passengers from queueing for the lavatories.
The directive from the Transport Security Administration (TSA) requires the crew to make announcements every two hours telling passengers that they must not ?congregate outside the toilets? or any other location."
What is the name of the USA Transport Security Administration official who thought up this nonsense ? www.tsa.gov
Are US Sky Marshals going to shoot people queueing up for the toilets ?
Should the TSA officials be sued for endangering passengers' health by increasing the risk of Deep Vein Thrombosis or that of people with bladder problems ?
Is there a similar order issued to US domestic airlines and carriers departing from the USA ? Remember that the September 11th 2001 hijacks were of flights which took off in the USA for domestic , not international, destinations . Such flights are always going to be a better weapon for terrorists as they will always have much more fuel aboard than transatlantic flights.
