I'm been a regular lately on the Southwest flight between Chicago Midway and JAX Florida. With Southwest's no seat assignment arrangement, it's a real bastard when you're singled out by the security Nazi's. I usually fly out Sunday and have to leave my house around noon for a late afternoon departure. The indignity of arriving early at the gate to get a low number so you can board first, only to get pulled aside for a "security check" is intolerable. One television travel editor remarked that the only terrorism you're likely to encounter while travelling is from the airport "security measures."
In the Southwest airline mag, their CEO made mention of the many challenges of installing locking cabin doors (pressure equalization-what a crock). The whole 911 incident was the airline's fault. There have been hundreds of incidents of attempted cabin attacks prior to 911. Then the government hands the airline 10 billion without any justification.
I'd leave the country if it weren't for powerboating.
