How far would you go to opt-out of facial recognition at the airport?

The ability for flyers to opt-out of facial recognition (in replacement of a passport scan) at airports seems to be a very well-hidden secret. In fact, according to a Delta customer service representative, last year only two per cent of flyers opted out of facial-recognition. According to one journalist, “it seems we’re sleepwalking toward a hyper-surveilled environment, mollified by assurances that the process is undertaken in the name of security and convenience.” Next time you board a flight, are you going to try sidestepping the tech?
