Los Angeles CA: Delta Cameras Now Scan Flyer Faces PDF Print E-mail

Soon to spread to other airports, the airline now uses electronic recognition tech at Los Angeles International. Cameras help in ID procedures on passengers, so far, at one boarding gate.

The sneaky system by Delta has been criticized by Greenpeace, MoveOn and the Electronic Privacy Information Center. There's talk of seeking a federal ban of the use of facial recognition technology by law enforcement agencies. They insist the faces recorded by the cameras can be stored and used to violate privacy. So, next time you board at LAX, offer a sunny smile or petty pout.
