    I took 6 flights in the last week and never had an issue with my MBA (ssd).

    haven't had any problems with TSA

    Made several trips with my MBA, only response was a "Cool" from the screener at Eagle County airport in Colorado. Screeners in Tucson and Washington, DC were either familiar with it or didn't pay attention.

    I live in Tucson and call you its the "didn't pay attention" option! :confused:

    I've been through there with water, large tube of toothpaste, and once with NO I.D. check! :eek:

    I've been traveling with an air since just after its release and have probably taken 60 - 70 flights with it since, all without a single problem going through TSA.

    There is no such thing as consistency when it comes to the TSA.

    They've never stopped me because of my air however you would cringe at the other reasons I've been "held up" at the security checks.

    I was because of my cane once. I couldn't walk through the metal detector with it. They had to slide it through the carry on baggage xray machine. A simple once-over with a set of human eyeballs in front of a working brain cell could have told you what it was.:rolleyes:
