Airline passen­gers in New York welcomed stricter safety rules that went into effect yesterday, especially in light of last week’s interception of U.S.-bound parcel bombs sent from Yemen.

Airline passen­gers in New York welcomed stricter safety rules that went into effect yesterday, especially in light of last week’s interception of U.S.-bound parcel bombs sent from Yemen. The rules require airlines to collect a passenger’s full name, date of birth and gender on all flights to and from U.S. airports.

The program is aimed at ensuring that passengers on the “no fly” list are kept off planes — and that innocents are not wrongly barred from flying. It is meant to prevent airlines from issuing a boarding pass if the information is incomplete.
