However it seems to be people cheering as if the "TSA" method of screening is going away or that these private companies would do something different than the pat downs (even to "grandma's) or body scanners and other things.
The METHODS would remain identical. There's a chance that those acting in an inappropriate manner...mind you, inappropriate based on the guidelines, not inappropriate as in "omg you patted down granny"...may be able to have more actoin taken against them. And maybe there's a shot that the workers may seem more polite. But what you're having to go through in regards to screening wouldn't be changing.
