Even in the midst of yesterday's emergency landing in Colorado Springs, it's still business as usual at the airport. Most passengers are thinking about what could happen. "You first of all pray it never happens to you but again there's a certain amount of confidence that you have in the system." says frequent flier Steve Brown
Others, like international traveler Colleen Quinn say you can't worry about what you have no control over. "It's the same thing as a train wreck or a car wreck or someone that's drunk driving or anything like that." she says, "People make bad decisions and this just happens to be on an airplane."
Tougher security screenings at airports may now become a reality. Something passengers we talked to welcome. "They should maybe do more of a full screen." says Quinn, "I'm not sure how that would work, but I think that they should definitely do a little bit more than they are now." They say in this day in age its better safe than sorry. "Given the nature of an adversary that really does want to take us out, there's people out there who really want to harm us." explains Brown, "So as far as the additional safety measures, I'm more than welcome to them."
