IAM Flight Attendants Say No Knives Ever Again at DCA Airport
Following the Transportation Security Agency’s (TSA) decision to delay allowing knives and other dangerous objects onboard commercial aircraft, IAM Flight Attendants—and their Coalition of Flight Attendant Union partners—descended upon Reagan National Airport in Washington DC to say knives should be permanently banned from the sky.
“Flight Attendants deserve a weapon-free workplace,” said IAM Flight Attendant Sara Gonzales. “Keep in mind, there is no security, police or medical help at 30,000 feet. Your Flight Attendants must stand on their own to protect the flying public.”
Following the 9/11 terrorist attacks the newly formed TSA banned knives and other dangerous objects from commercial aircraft. Earlier this year, in a move that shocked the flying public, the TSA reversed course and proposed allowing knives, small clubs and other dangerous objects onboard the nation’s jetliners.
