    Threatening air marshals = bad idea.  Jared Hansen was arrested after he allegedly threatened to shoot an air marshal on a Delta Air Lines flight from Amsterdam to Detroit, reports ABC News.

    She *really* didn't want that pat-down!  Andrea Abbott continues to fight her arrest on disorderly conduct after becoming vocal about her teen daughter being patted down or body scanned at a security checkpoint at Nashville International Airport, reports the Tennessean. Abbott says her first amendment rights were violated, but a judge ruled the case could move forward.

    If you wanna play, you have to pay.  AirTran is adopting a new policy for obese passengers, reports FOX8 Cleveland.  Under the policy, if a passenger cannot fit into one seat, they will be required to buy another one.  You can read my personal thoughts on this policy here.
