    We’re sorry, but there is no page that matches your entry. Possible reasons: The page may have been moved. It no longer exists. The address may have been typed incorrectly. Please try the following options: Visit the TSA homepage. Browse the A-Z index. Contact TSA.

    Notably: # You may request a pat-down inspection in lieu of going through the metal detector or being handwanded. You do not need to disclose why you would like this option.

    # If you have a disability, condition, or implant, that you would like to remain private and confidential, ask the Security Officer to please be discreet when assisting you through the screening process.

    Now, I know it doesn't happen that way a lot...but those are your rights...

      Someone on here, I hope they don't mind me saying this, said she told them she had a pacemaker and they hassled her about being to young to have one. Other people have said other things, but I can't remember or find them right now.
