MKE body scanners in yet?

Last time I flew through MKE in May, the body scanners were not in yet.

Have they since been put in use?

I would prefer not to have DD (9 years old) go through it and will probably have her patted down instead. I'm leaving it up to my 13 year old DS if he wants to go through or not.

Does anyone know for sure that has flown through there recently?

Thanks.

I haven't heard anything yet, but we fly out on Friday so I can post when I get back if some other diser hasn't helped before I get back.

Thanks.

We fly out early Saturday morning and it really isn't that big of a deal. I'll just let them know we prefer to do the patdown instead of the scanner.

Personally, as a 9 year old, I would have been mortified to have someone pat me down! I would think the scanner would be much better, especially if you don't tell her what the machine actually does.

There are no gender specific people back there. It's not as if the TSA agent sees which sex person is coming through and hits the female or male button, so that the image goes to the same sex TSA agent.

I guess those who don't want anyone viewing these images of children are going to have to opt for pat downs.

To make a comment, as was made a few posts before, is, to put it simply, is insulting. I would prefer if we didn't go down the road of who is looking at what photos.

Yes, who would care who is looking at whom? The images are not like looking at a photo or movie.

When I flew out of MKE on Sept. 15th, there was one body scanner and one of the old kinds. I opted to go through the old kind.

Yes, of course I told my children what the scanner does and gave them both the choice of what they wanted to do.

DD had opted for the pat down (after I showed her what the pat down would be like) and my DS (13) said he'd use the scanner.

The security point we went out of (MKE has two) didn't have the body scanner...so all we did was walk through the metal detector.

My DD asked me when we got to Tampa when we were going to go through the body scanner thing. I had forgotten to tell her we didn't need to do it. lol

Excuse me??? Did you really think that I, as a moderator here, 'reamed' you ??? Seriously? I answered your question. The person I alluded to had their post removed. Sorry if you took the bottom half of my post personally.
