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?

Despite how it might sound with a Scottish accent, Edinburgh is spelled with a "n", not an "m"!
