Some other examples from a document, by the Canadian Air Transport Security Authority:

– “I am going to set fire to the airplane with this blowtorch” (false declaration), versus “What do you think I look like, a terrorist?” (careless or inflammatory).

– “He is going to hijack the aircraft” (false declaration) versus “Hi Jack!” (careless or inflammatory).

– “The man in seat 32F has a machine gun” (false declaration), versus “My gun misfired when I was hunting this weekend” (careless or inflammatory).

Brigitte Caron, a spokeswoman for the security authority, said the clarification was issued because “screening officers were not discerning the context in which the declaration or the statement was made.

“And they were a little bit too quick on the trigger.”
