I am both shocked and pleased. They will allow small knives on planes again. They never fail to give me something to complain about however, and in this case, it’s the just-small-enough-to-not-be-useful 2.36” maximum allowable blade length. They should have gone back to the pre-9/11 limit, which if I recall correctly was roughly 3”. Regardless, this is a finally move in the right direction to focus on real real security rather than security theater, so it’s an overall positive.
