Can The Airlines still survive with nearly one third less paying passengers?
Washington, D.C.—With the current discussion of those horrifically expensive and intrusive full body scanners for airline travelers Fox News is doing a survey. The results so far indicate airlines will lose much more business yet.
Can our mortally wounded economy take yet another massive hit?

You need to examine this 2008 report about Americans and their response to the TSA and their security screening:
According to the Travel Industry Association, 41 million airplane trips were avoided last year by fellow Americans. That in turn dealt a $67 Billion cumulative cost to our economy.
A landmark survey revealed shocking information that points directly at the TSA and the misery they pile on to travelers with mindless security screening games and indignities that do nothing more that provide an illusion of security.
Flying today is a truly miserable experience.
