How safe to you feel traveling by airplane? Ever since 9/11 I am very wary, I find myself always looking around and get nervous when I see people stand up.

I think that due to security measures travelling by plane is very safe indeed. Two months after the awful event of 9/11 I flew into Los Angeles airport. Security was incredibely tight. They had even got rid of the post office there. The safest airports in the world must be in Israel. Every traveller was interviewed before checking in. Many people were taken away so the authorities could search their baggage. The worst thing I experienced on a plane, safety wise, was seeing the cover of a newspaper. There was a photo of a concorde crash! I think that made many of the passengers nervous. But plane crashes are very rare indeed. I feel quite safe when I fly.

I've always been a 'Nervous Nelly' when it comes to aeroplane travel, even prior to September 11th. I worry about mechanical failure more than I did hijacking, and I still feel the same way now. I can't avoid air-travel as I'm a military dependent and our stations take us all over the place. I live overseas now and I am more fearful of being somewhere and having some sort of terroristic attack occurring, then one happening on a plane; so, I guess I am not as paranoid while flying--just a little nervous of the plane falling out of the sky do to mechanical trouble.

I feel pretty safe because well before 9/11 no one cared about those kind of things so everyone flew thinking they were safely flying... now since that happened Airlines have been way too cautious about letting people inside the plane, for example now you have to take your shoes in the inspection... who would had thought of that in the past ? no one so thanks to all this new stuff they do you should travel and feel way more safe than before =) ____JChumi____
