CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Air travelers may be allowed to carry small knives on planes—again, and likely by Memorial Day weekend.

But flight attendants don't want that to happen. They protested a proposal to change the TSA policy at Charlotte Douglas Airport on Thursday.
 
They're also pushing the "No Knives Act of 2013" to permanently ban knives in the passenger cabin.
Glenda Tally with the Association of Flight Attendants says, “All knives are weapons."

The plan to allow small knives back on board was originally set for April, but was put on hold last month because of backlash from flight attendants.
