It’s a horrifying scenario that Wildgoose outlines!

Why having any choice would anyone contemplate traveling from Asia (or anywhere) with any American carrier given the mostly old planes-poor seat configurations- outdated entertainment options-geriatric CC- inedible food and zero service plus now some half trained armed cowboy Sky Marshal, a Redneck driver with a pistol in his pants plus the possibility of some trigger happy American doughboys. The thought alone is almost beyond comprehension.

To be serious its generally accepted that the inept American airline, airport and ‘inland’ security is largely window dressing to calm a public inclined to massive over reaction to any form of perceived personal danger and to believe that a ‘sky marshal’ aboard could have prevented 9/11 suggests that Wildgoose spends rather too long watching HBO
