click here I understand the Scan is to become compulsory and ' no scan then no fly' will apply
I wonder if people realise that this is a sign of the times of the war against terorism ; I can appreciate the reluctance of some women from Eastern countries to undergo this but that should not exclude them from the scan
I wonder what 'medical reason ' folks will dream up ?
If you wish to travel by Airplane you surely accept all the security protocols that are in place as a part of that experience ....
No scan, no fly..simples. The other alternative is to walk if they don't like it. Of course some women from the East may not agree with this but it is not as if there is no previous form from these areas.
I thought it was highly suspicious. It's not know whether they were together or not. But if they were, i find it strange that they gave different reasons for not being scanned. They should have been body searched afterwards, whether they were being allowed to board the plan or not.
I fully agree - regrettably it is even possible that a male terrorist could disguise himself in a bourka. Maybe there could, in bigger airports, be lady security people to monitor batches of female objectors, or as mrwoowoo suggests, a full body search.
"Glad they refused, now they can use the Chunnel.. unless they do the same?" As it was a random check, there is nothing to prevent them from flying again, unless they are unlucky enough to get stopped again. Thus my reasoning that they should of been searched.
