In one of the most significant rollbacks of airline rules since 9/11, Transportation Safety Administration officials said they will now allow passengers to carry small knives, golf clubs, hockey sticks and pool cues onto commercial jets.

The policy change, which will take effect April 25, is expected to help align the list of prohibited items on U.S. flights with those of international carriers and cut the time passengers spend going through security screening.

But not everyone is happy with the loosening of restrictions.The L.A. Times says the decision is being criticized by flight attendants and passengers rights groups.
