Of the 28,000 commercial airline flights that take to the skies on an average day in the United States, fewer than 1 percent are protected by on-board, armed federal air marshals, a nationwide CNN investigation has found.

know if the plane they choose has air marshal or armed pilots on it.
The doctrine of having Air Marshalls is based on a false premise that four planes can be hijacked in a day and used as weapons. Garbage. Perhaps someone has some data on how many planes were hijacked over US soil before 911? As a percentage of all flights, it would barely rate as being noticable.
If the official account of 9/11 is any example, out of 4 planes, odds are you're going to be able to overtake at least 3 of them. Considering that's allegedly what happened on 9/11, what's changed today?
