My grandson is planning a flight on 9/11.
Related question: Doesn’t Yahoo News know what month this is?So far, I’ve seen a story about a boy born on 9/11 and a pregnant woman who died on flight 93. Hello – it’s 8/11 today.

No, but not because I fear terrorist attacks. I just don’t like how TSA does business, so I avoid them.

Yes, I would fly. I wouldn’t give it a second thought.

Probably the safest day of the year to fly. However I’m with @WestRiverrat on this one, I rather take a train or boat.

Sorry, that was rude. Yes, I would fly.

Yes I have flown several times in the last five years on 9/11.

Yes, of course.

Yes, if the government suspect any possible threats they’ll take any kind of precaution to prevent it.

in the cockpit, hehe

Sure I would. I will be on a September 10 flight. Sept 11 wasn’t convenient.

Sure, why wouldn’t I?

Regarding the second question, I imagine we’ll be getting those types of stories for the next month.

Absolutely, I would fly no question about it.

KateTheGreat's avatar

Yes. I have done it plenty of times in the past.

No. Not that I think anything would happen on the 10th anniversary of 9/11, but just as a remembrance to those who died.

How many disasters of all kinds occur on any given day, even if we don’t hear about them? Tons right? Noone would move. Is it just about highjackings? What is so different about about 9/11? How about all the other hijackings?

Seelix's avatar

Sure, I would.

Probably not, but it has nothing to do with that day being 9/11. I just don’t really fly at all. If I did, I wouldn’t see a problem with it, though…
