Flight Attendants at Reagan National Airport are fighting a recent decision by the TSA to allow passengers to carry small knives and box cutters aboard aircrafts.
The new policy is set to take effect on April 25, after TSA chief John Pistole said earlier this month that small knives no longer pose a threat to aircraft security.
Flight attendants at Reagan National, like many others across the nation, are speaking out scrambling to get public support to overturn the decision.
Veteran flight attendant Tim Weston is here handing out flyers to passengers that reads: "No Knives, Ever Again."
"Well box cutters were used in 9/11 and they're small. No one would have ever thought," Weston says.
They are encouraging passengers to sign an online petition before next Thursday. That's when they plan to testify at a public hearing at Congress against the TSA decision.
