American Airlines searched Grenadian Prime Minister and defends it

American Airlines has defended its decision to search Prime Minister Tillman Thomas before he boarded one of its airlines at the Maurice Bishop International Airport last month.

In a brief statement issued yesterday, the airline said it always follows prescribed security screening procedures established by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Transportation Security Administration.

The statement said the procedures are uniform and the screening of the Prime Minister was conducted in full consultation with the Government of Grenada’s Protocol Officer and with the utmost respect in a private area of the airport away from the public.

American Airlines further says the private screening procedure is frequently used for Heads of States travelling on American Airlines.

Prime Minister Thomas told the Caribbean Media Corporation earlier this week that he had no problems with the search which occurred at the Airport’s VIP lounge last month.

Do you check your bus driver? Do you check all the other people on the bus? How about the train?

@ WINSTON

TRUST NO ONE! lol

I am just saying on a commercial flight you get what we all have to endure. You are not special when it comes to regulations. I use that as a reference I dont live worse case scenario but I do think of situations like what I mention and I am optimistic but I really believe even the pilot should be checked and any one that has to board a plane where lives are at risk.

So if we use worse case scenario for everything , we should no leave our homes. This can happend to pilots mechanics, or even the security. I just believe there should be some presumetion that a head of a country or the POPE , or the Queen, who represents thousands, or millions of people can be trusted.

@cartierlover I agree 100%

@ WINSTON no way should anyone on a commercial flight be exempt. for the same reasons I said before. No man is of more importance unless its your damn plane.

 

If someone kidnapped his child, wife, loved one etc

held them hostage then gave him specific instructions to get anything on a plane because they know he is exempt. A bomb, drugs, illegal contraband what ever the case may be, we would have serious issues.

I think there should some people , due to there position ( prime minister ) , that should be exempt from this.
