Handful of passengers 'opt out' of screening: TSA

USHartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, Kansas City International Airport and John Wayne Airport stated security lines at US airports were running smoothly despite an internet campaign for passengers to “opt-out” of the full-body scanners and instead receive a pat-down in hopes of creating delays (dailypilot.com/Kansas City Business Journal/Reuters/Bloomberg, 24-Nov-2010). According to the TSA, only a handful of people skipped scans with Hartsfield-Jackson Airport to have the most passengers to opt out at 26 out of an estimated 47,000 people to be screened on 24-Nov-2010.
