Summary:

The Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC) used FOIA to obtain records showing that Northwest Airlines shared passenger information with NASA for a project on aviation security - without telling its customers. This discovery comes on the heels of news that JetBlue provided data on over a million passengers to a Department of Defense contractor four months earlier.
