Our schedule is working out to where we would be flying on July 4th- my husband seems hesitant about it because of 9/11 and it being a patriotic holiday. Has anyone ever flown on July 4th? Would appreciate your input...

Just a polite bump- I told my hubby that this transportation board would give us honest thoughts and ideas, so please help!..

I haven't flown on the 4th but have on other holidays with no problems. What exactly is his concern?

I've flown on the 4th of July before and it isn't any different than any other day. If he's concerned about a possible terrorist attack, I think I'd be more concerned about something happening at a large gathering of people rather than a plane incident.

I wouldn't be more concerned flying on Independence Day than I would be on any other day. But, if he thinks that something bad would happen on a patriotic holiday, then I'd fly another day just to keep the anxiety level down.
