Do you think recent airplane incident will affect the airline business?

I was wondering, the incident of a Nigerian man attempt to blow up the transatlantic airliner would affect the future business of other airlines? Because take 9/11 tragedy for incident. It did giving an alarm to a lot of people in the States, and people rather drive than ride on the plane. Ever since then, the airline business started to crash. This incident also indicated the loophole of our airport checkpoint, and it might cause worries to other travelers. I just afraid that those airline giants might losing more future businesses. Because people need that confidence.

I agree with Jill...I think security has gotten a bit sluggish and will probably be revamped. Here in the U.S., if you have to fly, you have to fly. I also believe that the folks who fly are more aware these days and more willing to jump in to try to stop a would be bomber instead of simply sitting there scared.

That is right. People should taking action to defend their lives if they encounter similar incident. I meant, afraid to die is everyone's human nature. But if you don't do anything to help yourself, you might end up die as well. Taking action might give you a chance to survive.

I think security might be tighter.....I think they have actually gotten a bit lax in the past few years...now everyone will be under scrutiny which is fine. I personally don't want to be on a plane with a terrorist! I'd rather drop my pants at the gate to make sure everyone is secure!

I want to take flight on my personal account, it has all the great deal I can find online, or from the promotion of certain traveling agencies. But it might affect me if there is such big danger in flying a plane. Because I just want to be safe. The ultimate goal of traveling is to be safe, isn't it?

Back in the 60 planes were hijacked to Cuba and people kept flying. During the 70 and 80's planes were hijacked and people kept flying. In the 1600 and 1700 pirates were attacking ships and people kept sailing. During the 1800 people traveled west and were attacked by outlaws and Native Americans, but they kept traveling. There has always been hazards with travel and people keep traveling. If the airlines fail it will not be because of the attacks on them by terrorists.

I for one will never fly, just by chance I never did and after 9/11 I never will. I hope they stick a needle in that morons arm for what he did!
