6. I too am on the FAA No Fly list and have been since December 2001. Early on they over-reacted

and several strange and bizarre things happened when I would fly. I fly all of the time and found it interesting the code words they would use when you would go check in. At Southwest Airlines, the person would say, "That's strange, I've never seen it do that before!" referring to the computer when grabbing a supervisor. In all of the flights, I have never made it close to the inside of a plane to have been pulled off of a flight. I believe him that he was singled out for some special treatment. Now days, my frequent flier card allows me to fly normally since my very common name is still on the list. A terrorist from South Yemen used my name as an alias once. The FBI agent, who was later assigned to me to help clear me after my checking into a flight at the American Airlines counter shut down all of their computers at Bush Intercontinental Airport until I was cleared, told me my choices were to change my name, stop flying, or wait until they caught him. I guess he is still out there because i am still on the list. He is probably a retired terrorist now!
