Check a bag? Sucker. Only when the FFDO has his gun to my head.

I travel in uniform, never remove my liquids from my bag, and occasionally carry full bottles of wine home in carry-on bag. Key is to travel in uniform with ID badge. Never had a problem.

Only place I ever had a problem since TSA started their act was KJAC. They made me give up a tube of toothpaste (over 3.2 oz, don't cha know) and a half full pint bottle of water.

Are they still harassing the NJ guys at KCMH? There were frequent posts about that a while ago.

I always travel in uniform. No problems anywhere except for KHPN. The TSA there can make the SS look like a bunch of girl scouts. I really hate airlining out of that airport. If I'm traveling home, as soon as I get past security, I de-identify and enjoy a frosty beverage! :beer:

Thanks for the info. It seems to me that the bottom line is that it varies from airport to airport thanks.

I was just joking with my comment. Don't get your panties in a wad. I would like to work ay nja or most of the other fractionals for that matter.

When you guys are travelling through airports will the TSA let you bring liquid and gels inside security since you are not real pilots?


Members of FI should be commended for not burning this jerk at the stake.

The class of the people here shows that there is hope and whatever this guy was trying to say was below that of a human being.

Your opening statement was despicable and shows that you are a low life and your last post doesn't change a friggen thing.

Hahaha!!! That's funny stuff right there!!!

My license says "Airline Transport Pilot". What does your commercial ticket say again, you AWESOME "real pilot"? It's been sooo long since I had a commercial I can't remember.

I think the thread starter was joking. We all talk the same way about TSA thinking factional pilots are not real pilots. Lighten up Francis.

Going to work I wear the uniform like I'm required. I hand the TSA agent my drivers license and ticket. I let them make the assumption and they do everytime. Scary

Like required? If that's in the FOM, that's gotta change. As long as I don't have to check the bag, homey is wearing civies whenever possible.

Since you're one of those REAL pilots, I'll ask you because I've always wanted to know.

When you're sitting there, after going through TSA with your liquids, what's it feel like to not get home because the flights are full? I've always wanted to know how a REAL pilot deals with all that UNPAID time at the terminal. You see, we get paid to airline home and our company, who employs UNREAL pilots, makes sure we're taken care of by buying tickets.

Also, what's it feel like to take your family along while trying to go on vacation and making them go through the same hell you endure every week? How do they enjoy getting bumped off of one flight after another? They must be so proud to be there with a REAL pilot like yourself. You see, we get to keep all those SkyMiles and then we get to book REAL tickets so that we can enjoy our family vacations.

So what's it like being a REAL pilot who sleeps in ********************ty hotels, pays for his own food, has no pension, no travel benefits, and no real schedule?

Someday, I hope to be a REAL pilot just like you.... NOT!

First, I think the OP was joking since the TSA doesn't consider us "real pilots".

Second, for some reason, I haven't had a single problem with the TSA since January 15.

If you lived in Detroit, I'd never speak to you again! :laugh:

Vermont is a lovely state, you must be the only Republican there.

You guys are too sensitive.

Anyways...
When I was still employed by NJA, CMH was the only problem-child. Though everyone knows it and checks baggage.
