QuoteSneaking a bomb through security just to leave it in boarding lounge?
The bag could have come from somewhere within the airport. Security is not 100% airtight. It is, however, stringent enough that someone who is up to no good might find it easier to exploit the weaknesses within the airport than trying to get something through the front door.
And a bomb going off in the boarding lounge can still kill and main and cause terror. Anywhere that people queue or wait in numbers is an attractive target for terrorists.
I don't understand why anyone thinks its ok to watch a stranger's bag when there are regular announcements telling everyone specifically not to do it. People shouldn't be so casual about something so important.
I think what the OP did was the safe thing--for all of us!
Well I have been sitting waiting for a flight and I have done this plenty of times. Just because you won't do it doesn't mean others can't or won't. I have traded the watching plenty if times with someone I habe sat beside for awhile.
I have never heard announcements not to watch other bags. The announcement I have heard are to report unattended bags. If you agree to watch the aren't unattended. It is a very common practice that I don't mind doing if I feel the person is trustworthy.
