Flight attendants union opposes TSA rule change on knives

by
Congress
Congress

WASHINGTON (WKZO) -- The TSA is considering a plan to let airline passengers carry some knives on planes again. That doesn't sit well with flight attendants, though. Sara Nelson, with the Association of Flight Attendants, says she blames this possible rule change on the knife lobby, which represents companies that produce knives advertised as "TSA Safe."

She's against the possible rule change, noting that the 911 attackers only used small box cutters.

The Flight Attendants Association is hoping Congress will pass legislation to stop the TSA from changing its knife rules. It urges people to contact their representatives in Congress to pass the No Knives Act.
