An app called FlyRights will be released on April 30, 2012. The app provides people with an easy way to submit a complaint of unfair treatment by airport screeners with the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). You can also send your complaint to the Sikh Coalition if you want to.
There have been situations where people felt that they were being discriminated against by the TSA. A person may feel that he or she was unfairly singled out because of gender, religion, or ethnicity. There really isn’t a way to file a complaint about it while the person is at the airport. After all, he or she has a flight to catch. This means that the incident will probably not get reported until after the person gets back home, and takes the time to go online and figure out how to file a complaint.
The FlyRights App makes things much easier. The app is compatible with both iPhone and Android devices. Complaints that are filed through the app will be reviewed as official complaints by the TSA and DHS. The app asks you a series of questions in an incident report format. It helps you to make sure that you are reporting key information.
You can also use the app to send out a tweet to let your followers on Twitter know that you have filed a complaint against the TSA. The app also gives you information about your rights. The app is a product of The Sikh Coalition and was developed by Iconify.
