Yeah that too but that wasn't what I was getting at, my bad, I meant even in the long run, if an AL is going to hold this policy I wouldn't fly with them. And many do find this more concerning than a 'terror alert'. But I doubt they were thinking of the airlines at all. Not that I pity them, just saying who is going to want to fly to and from the US and UK now ? And I don't say this because of the terror element, but of the process one would have to go through now just to fly. Think about it. Vacations will be booked for 'safer' destinations now. How many people swore off flying after 911 (and actually did. I know many) ?
The 'extra' security measures put in place after 911 were a joke and to be honest they never even were implemented properly ... well not when all an even slightly attractive girl has to do it change into a halter top and tight jeans efore de-planing, she will slip right on through all that ... so imagine a real pretty girl ? lol seen it many times and have even been subject to more than one male in customs exerting more energy trying to get my phone number and try lines on me than check my luggage Even most of the women I have encountered on my travels were too busy runnin their mouths to do their job even half-assed. So all that hype doesn't hold much weight with me, they don't care as much as they want us to think they do about security.
And that's why I take all this with a grain of salt ... as just a means to instill fear in the masses. And I ain't bitin
