Robert Hart was prevented from boarding his flight when his artificial hip set off the metal detector at airport security and the all-female security crew refused to frisk him.
This isn’t the first time Hart has set off a metal detector at an airport but the first time he wasn’t allowed to fly. On their way to a wedding in Ontario, Hart and his wife went to the Northwest Regional Airport in Terrace, B.C. Hart offered to be patted down by a female CATSA screener but was refused.
“And the words that came out of her mouth were, ‘You’re not going to be able to board this flight. You can’t take this flight. You have to be patted down by male CATSA staff and one is not available.'”
The airport only has two male CATSA so Hart’s trip was delayed by nine hours until one was available.
Do you feel as though the female security crew should have frisked him? Is it fair that this man was refused to fly and had to re-book his flight when male CATSA was available?
