Metal knives are back in first class on Northwest and they’re coming back on Continental. The stupid TSA rule that banned them has been reversed. After all, metal forks were just as dangerous.
You can’t bring your own version of the very same knife, though. While knives are allowed on the plane they aren’t allowed through security. Doesn’t that get it in reverse? I thought the point of not allowing an object through security was to prevent it from getting onto the plane. I guess I’m old-fashioned that way.
