Airlines to test new security measures

CALGARY, Alberta, Sept 6 (Reuters) - U.S. airlines and intelligence agencies are set to test new security measures aimed at sniffing out potential hijackers before they board airliners, American Airlines' chief executive said on Friday.

American CEO Donald Carty said the security improvements, to be tested in the next few months, are a far better way to protect passengers in the aftermath of the Sept. 11 attacks than arming flight crews with guns, as promoted in both the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives.
