Deutsche Lufthansa AG's Chief Executive Wolfgang Mayrhuber suggested that a harmonization of security measures for travel to the U.S. would be in the interest of passengers, says a Dow Jones report.
"What we have right now is a rag rug of regulations and different security standards in different countries. This is not in the interest of passengers," Mayrhuber told reporters at a press conference. "More than nine years after the attacks of 9/11 we're still far away from the targeted one-check security," he added.
His comments come after the chairman of rival airline British Airways PLC Martin Broughton earlier this week criticized some airport security checks for travelers from Europe to the U.S.
