comment 11 hour international layover in Los Angeles (LAX)
Can you provide a URL to the "official websites" you're referring to? I didn't say "transit visa holders" were granted access. The US doesn't have a concept of a sterile transit area like most countries - if you're in transit, you have access to the country. Feel free to post any official sites that say otherwise.

comment 11 hour international layover in Los Angeles (LAX)
1) Non-US citizens in transit are not necessarily on C1 visas. Most will likely be on VWP, and those that aren't could be on any other form of visa. 2) I've never heard of anyone being granted "transit" but not being granted "admission to the US". Do you have a reference for that? Given how US immigration works it doesn't seem to make sense.

See my answer for full details, but the reason the US doesn't do PPBM (ie, offloading of bags) is because ALL checked luggage is screened for explosives before being loaded.

Although the question is different, the rules are exactly the same as to the "mother" question.

comment Can I bring my desktop computer as check-in baggage on a flight?
Sorry, but this answer is wrong. I've traveled with desktop computers as checked luggage several times (both international and domestic in several countries) and never had a problem. Security will know exactly what is in the box, and a few "wires and whatnot" will not in itself cause them to even consider inspecting the item.

comment Statistically, is there a safest seat on the plane if it crashes?
At the back clearly wins. After all, have you ever heard of a plane backing into a mountain?
