Travel tips for carry-on baggage
Among the tips to swiftly get through airport checkpoints:

• Have boarding pass and identification out when in line.

• Take off shoes and outerwear.

• Put any loose metal items, like coins, in your carry-on bag.

• Pack your carry-on bag as neatly as possible and layer items. For instance, a layer of clothes, then a layer of electronics, then a layer of toiletries.

• Put large electronics, like laptops, in a separate bin.

• Make sure liquids are in bottles containing no more than three ounces each, and put the bottles in one quart-sized clear baggie. One bag per passenger.

“You know you’re not a threat, but our TSOs don’t know you, and seemingly innocent items can actually appear to be potential threats in an X-ray image, simply by the way they’re packed,” according to the Transportation Security Administration’* Web site.

All this security and process has made flying less desireable for me.
Unless its a charter flight. I recently flew up north to a gold mine.
Showed up 10 minutes before take off.
No ID asked for.
Dropped my bags, they were loaded without inspection.
Got on board and picked my own seat.
No safety talk, stewerdess said to read the folder in the seat ahead of us if we wanted.
After take off and leveling people started wandering around and joking, talking, having a good time.

Last time I flew commercial they took my cigarette ighter, my bottle of water, questioned why my first name is O'Neil, hand inspected my carry on luggage, and metal scanned me even though I didnt trigger the walk through?

Here in the US, even Charter flights are being pressured to conform to the same security standards as commercial flights.
In fact, Port Columbus has a security check point in their charter terminal.

My trip is in 5 days, I'm so excited I can barely contain myself. I've wanted to see The Price Is Right since I was born. (yes a little over the top but it brings my point across :P ) and I'm giddy as hell now I'm actually going there to see it in person. I get to be sleep deprived for the chance of being Called on down!!!!

If something dows happen y'all will be the first besides my blood relitaves to hear about it!!!!
