Jill Harness

If you're among the 48% of travelers planning to avoid air travel until you can be assured you won't be subjected to the full-body scanners, you should know that just because an airport has purchased a scanner doesn't mean they use it. If you're planning to take a trip any time soon, check out this TSA Status page. It lets you know whether your airport and the one you are traveling to have scanners -- and if they actually use any scanners that have been installed.
