I know, the question might sounds very controversial, but i often heard rumours about horrible experience in some airports
- Major airports in US (most of the stories)
- Airport in Japan (Highly questionable)
- Airport in Europe (Highly questionable).
It is said that random passenger require to strip their clothes down. Is this story true? Have you ever seen or experienced this ?
If yes, is it performed in a concealed room or right in the middle of the crowds (where everybody can see)?
I find it hard to believe this story since major airport is equipped with X-Ray scanner and further patting down scenario (by hand) is sometimes performed to assessed random passenger for possible threat.
Extra Security Measures taken at Airports Undergoing a full body scan at airports may not actually be the end of the airport security checks. If for some reason the scanner cannot make a full assessment of the passenger then a strip search may be necessary. Passengers will then be required to enter a private area where they will be asked to explain any abnormalities. If security officials are still not satisfied the passenger may be required to remove layers of clothing until the security officials are satisfied. Passengers do have the right for a body search to be made by members of the same sex.
