My advice is don’t pack anything that will set off any alarms, wear clothing and shoes that are comfortable and easy to slip on and off,(spray a little deodorant in there) and help the TSA guys do their jobs. No one walks away from a plane crash.

I recently traveled with my granddaughter who has Spina Bifida and is in a wheelchair. She was asked to stand and needless to say that wasn’t possible. Better training for these agents would be of greater benefit. They pulled the nine year old aside and removed her plastic braces, shoes, and asked us to remove her from her chair. Repeatedly wanned her body. Guess what… just a small little girl trying to go to Disney World… no explosives involved. Meanwhile, other individuals, who might possibly have been a more likely terrorist, freely moved on without intrusion. Maybe a little more common sense and everyone screened in the same manner might be the thing to do.
