Here at Solutions Unlimited, we’re just like the rest of you. Only much smarter and full of forward-thinking ideas that will revolutionize the universe.
But we do share at least one thing with most of the unwashed masses out there: we hate the dog and pony show that is airport security. Between taking off your shoes, assuming the position for the body scanner, and being yelled at for forgetting to take your Ziploc bag of liquids out of your carry-on, it’s just a really unpleasant experience.
We have a few ideas on how to not only streamline the process, but make flying much more secure.
We think it’s really simple, actually. First, no more carry-on bags. X-raying bags just slows down the process, and is there really a ton of stuff in that bag that you can’t live without for a few hours? We didn’t think so. The only thing you’d be allowed to bring past security is a cell phone All bags would go through their current security and inspection process, but airlines would be required to allow each passenger to check one bag for free in lieu of carry-on baggage, though the process for checking a bag will need to be changed. Why will be readily apparent later in this post.
Which brings us to the screening process itself. Under our plan, the screening process will begin the moment you walk ino the airport. As you walk into the airport, you will be issued a number. When that number is called, you will be given a changing room to enter.In that room, you will be required to strip naked and pack all of your belongings, with the exception of your cell phone, in your checked bag. Once everything is packed, your bag will be left in the changing room for an airline official to gather and check for you.
You will move into your own private screening room, wherein you will either walk through a metal detector or body scanning machine. Once you clear that portion, you will move to a third private room.
In the third room, you will be able to select a set of scrubs to wear during your flight.
Once you reach your destination and claim your luggage, you will be able to access another changing room where you can change back into your normal clothing and turn in your scrubs to be laundered and re-used.
We realize that these new procedures may seem extreme at first, but we believe that you will find that it really does make the whole experience better.
