No Pat-Down, No-Fly List? Air Travel Gets Even Friskier

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — As the holiday season approaches, Americans are once again set to fly the friendly skies, but with federal officials warning of a renewed terrorism threat and heightened security measures, more passengers may have dispositions that are less than cheerful.

Commercial flying has grown increasingly stressful since Sept. 11, 2001, and security officials are more sensitive than ever to unruly behavior among disgruntled passengers, even before the Transportation Security Administration began rolling out its new pat-down procedures. So can getting a little uppity over a late flight land you on a “no-fly” list?

    Americans across the country will cease all leisure or discretionary air travel by or befoe the week of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day to protest the TSA. Follow the link below to the Meetup group: There will be far less people flying in 2011.
