Will everybody please stop having fun in first class
Jan Moir

First it was Sarah Ferguson throwing bread rolls and wearing a paper bag on her head. Then it was Jade Jagger, having a noisy wine-swilling party on a Virgin Atlantic flight to London, annoying other passengers in upper class. After this, yes, who could forget chirpy Ralph Fiennes taking advantage of Qantas first-class hospitality by having sex with an obliging stewardess in the cabin loo? Now it is the turn of Roger Moore’s frisky stepdaughter, who is accused of becoming too amorous with a boyfriend on a recent flight from London to Los Angeles.

A hijack-proof plane?
New autopilot is designed to make another 9/11 impossible.
By Christopher Leake, Home Affiars Editor
A hijack-proof piloting system for airliners is being developed to prevent terrorists repeating the 9/11 outrages.
The mechanism is designed to make it impossible to crash the aircraft into air or land targets - and enable the plane to be flown by remote control from the ground in the event of an emergency.

Britons love affair with mood foods now a a £1.1bn market
By Lauren Veevers
Published: 25 February 2007
It is a chocoholic\'s dream. Not only can they indulge in their favourite treat, but they can also say, honestly, that it is doing them good. "Mental Balance Chocolate Gaba" is not just any chocolate, however. It is one of a number of products being pushed in the food industry\'s latest marketing hype: mood foods.
Britain\'s obsession with life-enhancing, health-promoting foods generates more than £1bn annually, with the market for anti-carcinogenic, macrobiotic, lifestyle foods reaching near saturation point - Mintel, a market research company, estimates sales to have been worth £1.1bn up to 2006, having grown 143 per cent since the start of the decade.

Simon Calder: The Man Who Pays His Way
We know aircraft are terrorist targets - but what about airports?
Published: 17 February 2007
Two men can easily intimidate 200 people, if the pair happen to be carrying semi-automatic weapons. This was the scene on Tuesday at Heathrow Terminal 1, the hub of British Airways\' short-haul operations. The armed police watched sternly as passengers struggled with their luggage: the one-piece-only rule for economy customers on BA had just taken effect. People who had previously packed a couple of mid-sized bags were now having to cram everything into a single 23kg case.
Crikey, you may think; BA is going over the top, drafting in trained killers from the Met to enforce its controversial new baggage policy. But that wasn\'t the case (indeed, my experience at a couple of airports that day suggests that BA check-in staff are applying the rules with flexibility). The armed police were actually in the baggage reclaim area - and unwittingly demonstrating the wrong-headedness of Britain\'s aviation security policy.

UK. Widespread confusion over new aviation security regulations and what can be carried through security and onboard aircraft has led to some extreme reactions by consumers.

UK media reports in the past few days have highlighted the funny, bizarre and angry side of the security dilemma as they react to items being confiscated at the security points.

The tiny airline spy that spots bombers in the blink of an eye
By Christopher Leake
Defence Editor

Tiny cameras the size of a fingernail linked to specialist computers are to be used to monitor the behaviour of airline passengers as part of the war on terrorism.

Cameras fitted to seat-backs will record every twitch, blink, facial expression or suspicious movement before sending the data to onboard software which will check it against individual passenger profiles.
