TSA-Approved Laptop Bags

With word that the Transportation Security Administration will allow people to keep their laptops in approved bags at airline security, the company Mobile Edge have fast-tracked a line of checkpoint friendly cases.

The “Scan Fast” collection includes a briefcase, backpack, and messenger bag. All three will allow its contents to be x-rayed within the bag — eliminating the need for people to go through the laborious process of taking them out. The laptop bags will go on sale later this summer.

Meanwhile, another company, Skooba, is quickly coming up with their own TSA-approved laptop bag.

Expect a boom in the production of these bags real soon, with a number of popular bag and case companies coming up with their own.

JetBlue Offering Joy Of Check-In With No Flight

Do you crave the experience of checking in at your airport — running the security gauntlet, having your luggage evaluated, waiting in long lines? But that whole “traveling” thing is sort of a downer?

Well, you’re in luck: JetBlue is offering “Flights To Nowhere” to test out their new terminal at JFK airport.

The airline is seeking 1,000 of its frequent fliers to test the new system. They would check their luggage, go through security, and then wait at the gate for an imaginary flight.

The rewards: food, freebies, and other perks to-be-determined.

The “Flight To Nowhere” is scheduled for September.
