Reply To: Air marshalls on all US carrier into USA… a step too far?

Back to Forum



I would agree that it is a sad day when we have to include security personnel with firearms onboard. As we say in Scandinavia, it is the choice between the plague or cholera… Damned if you do, damned if you don’t.

However, I will not make my choice of carriers on the basis of Air Marshall or no Air Marshall. I will buy on price, schedule, service and FF miles/points. I rarely pick US carriers anyway for long haul flights, and I tend to use only Continental for domestic travel I certainly will not use US Airways again after my last BOS-SJU flight in First. Utter rubbish and not worth the money; next time I will use Continental even it requires a connection at EWR. Don’t know if we had any Air Marshalls onboard 🙂 I will look next week when I am on Continental to EWR.
