I spend an average of 30 hours in planes annually. These new restrictions which are going to be the "new normal" from now on gare going to make me think twice about taking long flights. What are travellers going to do if they have stomach flu and need to use the washroom in the last hour of the flight. It is so stupid to restrict passengers only during the last hour as if that will prevent determined terrorists from carrying out their plans. They will just move the plans two hours before the landing..... so there!!! Do you see the utter stupidity of the whole thing ? What exactly are they not telling us? It's not a stretch of the imagination to conclude that there is more to this "last hour of flight" new rules they have flung at us.
Now, here comes news that hundreds of al-Qaeda militants are planning terror attacks from Yemen, the country’s Foreign Minister said today.
Also, there are rumors that there was a small cell on the same flight with the Christmas Day terrorist. Another passenger was arrested after the plane landed and the authorities are now looking for the third.
