Thread: I'm flying this Friday, 9/11
#1 I'm flying this Friday, 9/1109-08-2009, 03:38 PM
I never really thought about it when I booked the reservation, but for some reason today I was wondering if it was bad ju-ju to fly on the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.
I only think about these things now that I have a son at home... and his 1st birthday is the 18th of this month.
Am I being goofy worrying about it? I think I am... would you fly on 9/11?I like to shoot people with my CANON.

I not only would, I have."Today, [the American voter] chooses his rulers as he buys bootleg whiskey, never knowing precisely what he is getting, only certain that it is not what it pretends to be." - H.L. Mencken

I hate flying on planes. If my destination is east of the Rockies, I'm driving there or taking Amtrak.
I hate flying on any day, though. If I had to fly on 9-11, I would. I just don't ever really need to fly, because I don't have enough money to travel to the west coast or overseas.

How creepy is that? :eek:
I wouldn't book a flight on that date, myself. I'm not superstitious and I don't believe in bad luck but it's an extremely significant date for me. I would feel funny successfully completing my flight on that date when so many others didn't.
