Airlines Want to Move Air Marshals From First Class

A nation airline trade group has asked the Department of Homeland Security, and the TSA to move Federal Air Marshals to seats further back in the plane, according to a report by USA Today.  As with many things in life it seems that this latest move comes down to dollars & no sense.  The airlines say agents are not needed in first class and “it has become a costly disruption that isn’t justified by current security threats.”

Although the agency has declined to confirm where Marshals normally sit, many feel that it is not the airlines place to comment on these sorts of security decisions in public.  John Adler, president of the the Federal Law Enforcement Officer Association has asked that the airline executives be reprimanded for their actions.
