The Transportation Security Administration has postponed plans to allow small knives on US planes, according to the Coalition of Flight Attendant Unions and the Association of Professional Flight Attendants, a union at American Airlines, which were fighting the proposed changes.
TSA chief John Pistole is reported to have said in a letter to employees that the ban was to be maintained after a meeting with an aviation security panel. Unions representing flight attendants at Fort Worth-based American Airlines and Dallas-based Southwest Airlines fought the TSA’s proposal.
“The APFA is pleased that the TSA has decided to postpone this change,” said Leslie Mayo, a spokeswoman for the Association of Professional Flight Attendants at American. “We got what we wanted for now. Every day without a knife on board is a good day.”
