Re: US Inbound Int'l Flight Security Questioning - US vs. Foreign Airlines

I'll never understand how we are any safer answering these questions. Every pax going to the US has gone through the same security as the passengers heading elsewhere. Thus, regardless of the 'interview', they've been through security... Because they like feeling special and keep the public scared.

Re: easyJet Receive their First A321neo

The windscreen "mask" is a standard feature on the A350 and A330N but isn't offered on the A320 series, unless the airline makes it part of their livery (a la AC). I don't think that's correct, in fact you seem to be completely wrong about that: https://farm1.staticflickr.com/841/41473914...
