CPAP alert! Danger Will Robinson!
Well, Christmas Day terrorist incident aside, it looks like the airline industry takes security seriously after all. Check out this post on flightsfromhell.com. The writer, a CPAP user, is subjected to a "CPAP alert" when he goes through security:
I am taken off to the side and my bag is given a thorough search. The machine and all contents of my carry-on are removed, the CPAP is swabbed for explosives...and the contents are hastily returned to my bag.
Kind of embarrassing (although there are plenty more embarrassing items people get caught with, I'm sure). Not to mention, who wants their CPAP manhandled?
Maybe he should carry the CPAP in his underwear?
