Letter to the Editor – Draft 1

I am appalled by the TSA’s recent decision to allow knives back into the aircraft cabin. As a Flight Attendant and the last line of defense in the cabin, I believe that these proposed changes could endanger crewmembers and the passengers we work so hard to keep safe and secure. Keeping dangerous items off the aircraft is an integral layer in aviation security and must remain in place. Air Marshals, pilots, Transportation Security Officers and airline CEOs agree with Flight Attendants. The people on the front lines of aviation security know this is a bad idea.

Letter to the Editor – Draft 2

As a Flight Attendant, I am very concerned over the recent TSA decision that will allow knives back into the aircraft cabin April 25th.  Flight Attendants are responsible for the safety and security of the passengers in the cabin and every day we have to de-escalate conflicts or direct passengers to help contain more serious incidents.  All it takes is the wrong person at the wrong time to create a disaster. Millions of airline passengers need more security than that. Air Marshals, pilots, Transportation Security Officers and airline CEOs agree with Flight Attendants. The people on the front lines of aviation security know this is a bad idea. Join us in protecting air travel.

Letter to the Editor – Draft 3

As a Flight Attendant for over x years, I am shocked and appalled by TSA’s recent decision that will allow knives onboard an aircraft.  The prohibited items list plays an important role in aviation security. Allowing knives and other dangerous objects to be carried into the aircraft cabin is the wrong move for combating terrorism and puts every single passenger in the cabin at risk.  Air Marshals, pilots, Transportation Security Officers and airline CEOs agree with Flight Attendants. The people on the front lines of aviation security know this is a bad idea. I have yet to meet a single passenger who thinks this is a good idea.  TSA needs a reality check.

Letter to the Editor – Draft 4

Recently, the TSA announced that effective April 25, knives will once again be permitted into the aircraft cabin. Flight Attendants are charged with protecting the safety, health, and security of passengers and reintroducing weapons onboard the aircraft will make our work harder and everyone in the cabin less safe and secure. We support risk based security, but introducing a risk makes no sense. We must do everything possible to protect air travel. Air Marshals, pilots, Transportation Security Officers and airline CEOs agree with Flight Attendants. The people on the front lines of aviation security know this is a bad idea.
