TSA Clears Macbook Air For Takeoff

Email Print

From the blog of the federal airport police (yes, the TSA has a blog):

I’ve contacted Apple to see if I can process a MacBook Air through an X-ray and see how it looks. If it does indeed look odd, I’m going to take a picture and send it to TSA Training to help avoid future issues with MacBooks. The jury is out for now, but I’ll post an update as soon as I can get my hands on the MacBook Air.

One thing is for sure though. This was just a case of diligent TSOs paying special attention to something that caught their eye. Exactly what they are trained to do…


Thanks, Bob! Let’s see if we can allow passengers one of these days.
