* All of these examples is driving more and more people to use UsefulNotes/{{Amtrak}} passenger trains instead, which have no security checks, and are a lot more comfortable and social than airplanes.
* Security is also one of the reasons why UsefulNotes/HighSpeedRail is more popular than aviation on many routes in Europe and Asia.
* This is also why despite short and affordable flights, flying is often seen as more trouble than it's worth in the UK and Europe, particularly due to the queues involved. For instance, whilst an American would have no trouble flying from London (England) to Edinburgh (Scotland), a Brit will instinctively drive or take a train.

** The main point here is that the guards didn't recognise him and therefore had no idea what the funny metal thing was, so it's reasonable enough that they would want to inspect it visually -- which is all they did.

* United Airlines was all over the news, became the butt of late-night comedy shows, the subject of government inquiries and had to give out an undisclosed but presumably substantial payout after a passenger was dragged off a plane, bloodied and badly injured after refusing to "[[GotVolunteered volunteer]]" to give up his seat to one of the company's employees because the flight was overbooked.

* In the ''Series/DrakeAndJosh'' made for TV movie, ''Drake And Josh Go Hollywood'', Drake and Josh put their sister Megan on the wrong plane. After they discover this, the two attempt to run onto the plane and get here before it takes off. They are stopped by security. Afterwards, the boys are released and one of the officers tell them that they take airport security "very seriously", to which Josh voices his concern on whether or not the strip search was really necessary.

* Parodied in ''Videogame/{{Mardek}}'', where you have to go through 10 security guards every time you want to use a teleporter, all of whom ask you ridiculous questions. If you answer a question incorrectly, the guards will yell "TERRORIST!!1" and transform into a [[HopelessBossFight nigh-invincible "security demon"]].
