Sigh. I just noticed the FAA still bans stuff like tiny swiss army knives. I thought they had rescinded the ban, but they reinstated it 3 months laters. At the time of the lifting of the ban, the Association of Flight Attendants - CWA rep said " It's not just about the ability to take down an airplane or use the airplane as a weapon of mass destruction as happened on 9-11. It's about the ability to protect the entire airplane including the aircraft cabin and all the passengers on board. It's our job to be focused on everybody" but any damn thing can be used as a weapon. It's ridiculous.
