    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 not only would, I have.

    I have, too, and it was nice! The airports were pretty empty.. :) Leave the bad ju-ju to everyone else-they'll stay home and mke your flight more enjoyable.

    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.

    It does. I hate it and my company doesn't pay for anything more than coach. So I have to get there early and hope I get an exit row seat. Sometimes I'm lucky, other times I'm not.

    This is a 4 hour flight too...

    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.
