Air travelers may notice something new at MSP security today: a different kind of “pat down” search. Until now security agents have used the back of the hands to do pat-downs. Now they’re using the front of the hands when deemed necessary. Such searches may be conducted if metal detectors indicate a need for a more thorough search, or if travelers choose not to go through the new body “scanners” at MSP.
