Since 9/11, airports as we all know won’t let you go past security without a boarding pass. I don’t understand that concept. You still can even get on a plane w\o a boarding pass anyway. I know it probably makes congestion a lot better becasue there isn’t so many non travelers walking around the terminals. I know the idea of preventing terroritst from going through security is the main thing, but, if a terrorist wanted to blow up a bomb in an airport, they could do so in the lobby’s. There is just as many people there too. I go to O’Hare a lot and i notice in terminal 1 and 3 being UAL and AA’s terminals, theres is alway a massive amount of people waiting at the desks and in line for security. i would love to be able to take my mom, dad, or girlfriend to the gate when i take them to the airport ro even great me! I miss those days of waiting for loved ones to greet you. The terrorists can do the same amount of damage in the lobby instead of the terminals.
My point is that i want to be able to go through the security checkpoint w\o a boarding pass just like the old days. I don’t see the point the TSA does that. Can you see my point.
