Airport Security Process Changes

Be prepared to take off more clothing at security check points this year. Federal Security Director Jim Holden says even suit coats must come off. "Sweaters, sweatshirts, the outer garment has to come off as well," Holden said.

Holden says the feds are beefing up security because of two Russian planes that crashed this summer due to explosives. Two women were suspected in those crashes, now new security measures are in place in America, including the much talked about pat downs on women.

"Women's under wire bra will set off alarms and if it does, then it must be resolved. The only way it can be resolved is through a physical pat down. We have enhanced those procedures to make it as non-intrusive as possible," said Holden.
