Nice to know they are rebutting the US data demands
I have a trusted, real-life, travel agent who books all my travel needs.
Her office address is my home address, there are no mobile phone numbers, frequent flyer plans are for the birds, email addresses are on her agencies servers and forwarded on demand. As for credit card data - she books hundreds of thousands of dollars of travel on her agency plastic.
And she uses EU-based Amadeus res system as all the US systems such as Sabre, Apollo, Expedia all pump their data straight into US Government computers.
Land transportation is still the best way to cross a border with minimal mouse trails - ask Nick Leeson (Barings Bank spectacular failure) and CHOY Hon-Tim (USD$14-million Singapore bribery case) who both used air transport.
And with all the sources for fake ID, including passports, there are still many holes to close.
