He relayed information about holding planes for late connecting passengers, upgrading tickets, and changing seats.
Oh, and he also included this about Federal Air Marshals:
Do you know who the federal air marshals are?
Yes, we call them FAMs. We typically board them first, and they are almost always sitting in an aisle seat in first class. They are not on every flight though. The flight crew's typically informed who the FAM is, but passengers can easily spot them since they're usually sitting on the plane already when everyone else boards. Kind of defeats the purpose in my opinion, but that is the procedure.
Now, I understand that everything is discussed somewhere online.
But, legitimate journalists should be held to high standards.
Is discussing how to spot an armed federal agent on an airplane helping or hindering public safety?
Is endangering the lives of others a responsible practice for a professional?
So what's your next article Mr. Hobica?
--Where are the soft spots on ballistic vests worn by police officers?
--How to weaken a building's roof to maximize fire fighter losses at the scene of a three alarm blaze?
--What are two actions teachers are guaranteed to take during a critical incident at school?
I realize that there is pressure to attract readers, but not at any price.
On a positive note, I know administrators of these federal agencies are well versed regarding the intelligence available on their tactics. As such, any information that compromised the safety of air marshals would result in immediate program changes.
