Apparently the US reached a milestone recently: for the first time ever someone was able to get off the nofly list:
Note this is the case where someone got themselves off the list. Does anyone have any idea how many people have been taken off the list through other means like the Gov’t itself deciding to take people off? I am sure some have been taken off and I know the totals are considered a state secret, but has anyone seen any estimates? A quick google found one estimate that the total number of people on the list is in the 100,000s, but I think that is too high. How big is the list? Any ideas?
