Mid 2000 Macbook Air boot from USB

Why is it that NO Mid 2011 Macbook Air CANNOT boot (Lion) from the USB external drive? Two online Apple reps were not aware ofthis issue as well as the rep at the Apple store. We tried various
methods including their own Apple Store Macbook Air and
none of them could boot from the external drives. None of the
Apple workers were aware of this issue.The Apple store said that
not being able to boot from an external drive makes it more difficult for them to help people diagnose situations. We also could not
book from a Lion installation disk or thumb drive. Few people have posted this issue on the web. Does Apple need to provide a firmware update????
