A question: Would most of the passengers on planes have been Americans?
Were they flying from the UK or from other countries? Were they all flying to the US? Does anyone know? I'm becoming more skeptical...

And I fly from London to the States several times a year....most would have been either Brits or Americans.....about 50/50.

4. Yep..one of my first thoughts too!
Because one of the lessons i might learn from this would then be....best not to fly out of the USA....and further...best not to try to leave the usa...not safe. More fear, more fear, more fear! One of the admin reactions to the CT primary was....that action emboldened the enemy...that democratic support of anti war, end the war, etc....and then just a day later, this happens..and what do we learn..we learn that if we support anti war candidates, then this will happen because we emboldened the enemy. More fear, more fear.

6. Probably a good amount of Americans on board....
Along with some Britons and perhaps a handful of folks from other countires connecting to the US through England.

7. This time of year, it could possible be more Brits
I've found that when we fly to the US from England right after American students have gone back to school, many Brit families take a holiday. It lowers rates for them and ensures smaller crowds at vacation hot spots (theme parks, beaches, etc.).
