This almost ended up in comedy.

But it's the Reader's Digest, who i've always thought to be more serious.

Whether it's *really* a pilot or not, I don't know, but chances are being human ( like the rest of us ) they have their own opinions as well which may not be that of their employer.

Opening paragraph below

Quote:

Welcome aboard. Our flying time this afternoon, not counting ground delays and holding patterns, will be two hours and thirty minutes.

Before we take off, I would like to apologize on behalf of this and every airline for the hassle you just endured at the security checkpoint. As is patently obvious to any reasonable person, the humiliating shoe removals, liquids ban, and pointy-object confiscations do little to make us safer.
