Default Plane vs Train, which would you rather take with the new regulations?

So with the underwear bomber in December, the airlines and the goverment decided we needed to have new regulations when we travel on the airlines. So would you rather take the train of take an airline if you were crossing the States.

And these new regulations are? We are flying in July and everything I found doesn't show anything new, but if stuff changed I want to know.

Well from what I heard it varies per airline. You can't have anything out on your lap for the last hour of flight, you can't take certain things on board etc. I didn't do any research on this other than the bs session here at work. I will do some research when I get home and look. I'm still at work.

"Travelers should prepare for any of the following procedures at airports:

Increased screening, including pat-downs and bag checks
Secondary screening at the gate after initial security screening
Passengers banned from leaving their seats during last hour of flight
All carry-on items must be stowed during the last hour of flight, including blankets and pillows
Increased bomb-sniffer dog presence at airports
Passengers barred from using electronic devices during flight
Carry-on items limited to one bag per passenger
The TSA has subsequently announced the following additional airport security procedures:



Effective January 3, 2010, travelers flying to the U.S. through, or from, 14 countries will now face additional security screenings

TSA named 10 "countries of interest" Afghanistan, Algeria, Iraq, Lebanon, Libya, Nigeria, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Somalia and Yemen -- as well as four nations known to be sponsors of terrorism -- Cuba, Iran, Sudan and Syria.

Most of these countries do not have direct flights to the U.S., but passengers who begin their travels there or fly through these countries will face additional screenings.
Q: What additional security measures is TSA taking domestically?
A: TSA has a layered approach to security that allows us to surge resources as needed on a daily basis. We have the ability to quickly implement additional screening measures including explosive detection canine teams, law enforcement officers, gate screening, behavior detection and other measures both seen and unseen. Passengers should not expect to see the same thing at every airport.

Q: What additional security measures are being taken for international flights to U.S. destinations?
A: TSA issued a directive for additional security measures to be implemented for last point of departure international flights to the United States. Passengers flying into the United States from abroad can expect to see additional security measures at international airports such as increased gate screening including pat-downs and bag searches. During flight, passengers may be asked to follow flight crew instructions, such as stowing personal items, turning off electronic equipment and remaining seated during certain portions of the flight.

Q: Do passengers need to do anything differently to prepare for checkpoint security procedures? Has anything changed in terms of what passengers can bring in their carry-on or checked bags?
A: At this time, security checkpoint requirements for passengers departing U.S. airports remain the same. Passengers do not need to do anything differently, but they may notice additional security measures at the airport.

Q: Should passengers plan to arrive at airports earlier than normal?
A: Passengers traveling within the United States should give themselves extra time to check in and proceed through the security checkpoint before their flight, especially during the busy holiday travel season. TSA advises that passengers traveling on international flights to U.S. destinations allow extra time for security and arrive an additional hour earlier.

Q. How long will these measures remain in place?
A: TSA will continuously review these measures to ensure the highest levels of security.


This is the email I received at work about it.

Thats only for international flights. Domestic flights have not changed at all. I flew right after Christmas twice and lots of people I know have also. Nothing is changed for domestic flights.

That wasn't my understanding but it could be true. The regulations didn't kick in till later after it had become 2010

Its international flights. I should have said have not changed MUCH for domestic flights. Nothing drastic or stupid.

Taking a train cross-country will take days. Taking a plane will take a few hours.

Ya, until Mag-Lev is everywhere, planes are the only way to get around this country. You could ask Scotty to beam you up- than beam back down to where you are going, but last I heard, the Enterprise was somewhere in the Delta Quadrant.

We are staying in the US so that is good then. 2 of the 3 flight both ways are around 2 hours and not having a carry-on for half of the flight would suck.

All they're doing, if they do it, is making your put stuff like laptops and stuff piled on your lap away for the last hour or whatever of the flight. I think you'll survive.
