Airline Security So That No One Will Fly
Seems to me that the new security measures are designed to discourage people from flying.

2. Doubtful...
They want people to spend money, and pack the planes. The travel and airline industry do not want people to stop flying a la late 2001.

6. That may be what the industry wants, but is it what the

4. Well, my mom has a panic disorder that requires her to carry
bottled water on planes. I guess they lost her as a customer.

5. Tell her to notify the airline and get water as soon as she gets on
the plane. I have a panic disorder also which requires me to fly stoned on tranquilizers.

8. I have to take Xanax or I can't fly
I'll be asking for bottled water before I get to my seat.
