Flight attendants now also exempts from pat-down searches

AP-Flights attendants are going to be able to board a plane without a body scan or pat-down, just like the pilots.

The Transportation Security Administration confirmed the change on Tuesday after The Associated Press asked about it. On Friday the TSA said pilots could skip the more intense screening, including full-body scanners. Flight attendants argued they too should be exempt.

The TSA says pilots and flight attendants must still go through a metal detector.
