Denny, Nina has a pacemaker and has never flown commercial since she got it. She has a plastic card describing it and signed by her doctor. He says she should not be wanded nor go through the magnetic loop. So I guess she would have to get the full pat down.






Ward, I wish I could say that TSA agents might be compassionate and understanding in such a circumstance-- but I've seen no indication of that. The full pat down is VERY intrusive, and seems particularly so to women "of a certain age", who have lived lives of some modesty.

OTOH, some younger women don't seem to mind it-- we had a sweet young thing interviewed by local news after going through it, she just shrugged and said, "I've been felt up more than that by a stranger on the dance floor-- at least this lady was wearing a name tag!"
