6yr old placed on "no fly" list

An Ohio family recently learned their 6-year-old daughter was on the Department of Homeland Security’s 'no-fly' list, Fox8.com reported.

Alyssa Thomas, 6, was traveling with her parents when a ticket agent notified the family she was on the list of restricted fliers.

"We were, like, puzzled," said her father, Dr. Santhosh Thomas. "I'm like, well, she's kinda six-years-old and this is not something that should be typical."

When the family tried to clear up the issue with Homeland Security, they received a letter notifying them that it could not be changed.

"She's been flying since she was two-months old, so that has not been an issue," said Dr. Thomas. "In fact, we had traveled to Mexico in February and there were no issues at that time."

Transportation Security Administration told Fox8.com that Alyssa never had any problems before because the "Secure Flight Program" just went into effect in June for all domestic flights.

“The watch lists are an important layer of security to prevent individuals with known or suspected ties to terrorism from flying,” a TSA spokesman told Fox8.com.

The Thomas family plans to make another appeal to Homeland Security.

Whew, I feel so much safer now :thumbs: Glad they're finally focusing on 6 year-old girls instead of young men from known terror-supporting states.

Bull. This isn't the first child to be stopped and is not the first innocent individual to be stopped either.

The list does very little to help, just as the scanners do very little to help either... It's all a facade to make it look like they are doing something important.

I wish they'd tie in the birthdate and ID # on this list, available for TSA employees to see , check, and verify.

I read the other link from the original story and it said they will still allow her to fly but the check in time will be a lot longer

There are probably 100 children on the no fly list due to their names matching others. I hope they all find each other and deliver a class action.

Yeah, there was a similar story about a 5 year old boy. They fly but must wait at least an extra hour each time.
