I've been trying to get a clear answer from someone who has experienced this - if going through TSA security you end up in the full body scanner, will you then also be forced to submit to the aggressive pat-down because of what they see on the scanner image (i.e. the Pod)?
I do not want speculative answers, please. I've gotten nothing but speculation everywhere. I really only want answers from people who have been through the full-body scanners at a TSA check. Not metal detectors, not the air-puff machines, but X-Ray backscatter or millimeter-wave machines only. I am trying my hardest to become an informed flier when it comes to the TSA procedures, but I cannot find this information anywhere. And if I am going to be subjected to that miserable pat-down anyway, there is no reason for me to step foot in one of those machines and have some dude checking out my naked body somewhere.
Oh, and if anyone has any experience flying out of the Schiphol airport in Amsterdam since the whole underwear bomber thing, please let me know.
Thanks in advance!
