The US Transport Security Administration (TSA) fared poorly in a October 2013 survey of frequent business fliers.
An online survey of 2,415 respondents was conducted by FlyerTalk, the world’s largest online travel community, in partnership with Frequent Business Traveler magazine.
About 66 percent of the survey participants said that the TSA’s screening procedures are either not effective or not too effective in preventing acts of terrorism on-board aircraft.
The ratio of dissatisfied travelers is however significantly less than the 76 percent dissatisfaction level in last year’s survey.
Nearly 27 percent of participants indicated that TSA procedures are somewhat effective, 6.8 percent rated the procedures as very effective and just 1.2 percent considered the procedures extremely effective.
