Passengers wonít really be aware of what goes on behind the scenes, either with checked baggage, cargo or catering / cleaning etc. What they donít see wonít particularly bother them.

Iím inclined to wonder why, if security is Ė as alleged Ė so lax at Sharm, no one has attempted to smuggle a bomb on board an aircraft previously. If it were that easy, I find it difficult to believe it hasnít been done before now.
