Airline rejects guns on flights

Britain’s biggest holiday flight operator, Thomas Cook Airlines, has become the first carrier to display open dissent to the government’s new security requirements by refusing to carry sky marshals on flights to the US.
The company, which operates 40 flights a week through US airspace, broke ranks over measures viewed as draconian by many airlines and pilots.

Thomas Cook said if it were asked to carry armed marshals on any aircraft it would cancel the flight.
