I'm pretty sure they changed the flight number. As for the rest of the question, no I wouldn't. However, I would travel on September 11th between those cities on Delta. Why did you mention JFK? None of the planes used on 9/11 departed from JFK.

If I needed to fly then I would and yes I would use those airlines. I find this a bit silly and pointless and it isnt disrespectful. If you need to fly you need to fly!

I was on a CO flight on Friday, Sept. 10, 2004 SEA-EWR that was scheduled to arrive about 11:30 pm on that same day. Due to runway/taxiway work being done that month at EWR, we had a ground stop for about 1 hour at SEA and I arrived close to 1 am on Sept. 11th. (borded at the normal time, taxied out then stopped and parked at the far end of the airport to wait) My intent was to not 'fly' on the 11th but it didn't work out that way. Fortuntally, the flight on a 737-(800?) was only about 50% full, had a good conversation with a f/a during the flight and overall had a good experience. Still, it was a bit wierd. Still though, I wouldn't want to take a morning flight on a Sept. 11th out of BOS or EWR.
What does wierd me out about 9/11/01, was in late August, about 2 weeks before, I had traveled round trip EWR-BOS-EWR on CO (737's both ways) and I had sharp box cutters and office sissors in my carry on - and no issues from security then. I was on business assisting with the reviewing of client documents in a warehouse to oppositon attorneys/paralegals in a case I was working with and used them to open taped sealed boxes.

I mean if business took me to JFK, LAX of SFO then yes. But other than that I can't really see myself flying from JFK to the west coast for any reason.

Because they weren't a banned item then. Nothing the hijackers did up to the hijacking itself was illegal. Not the way they purchased their tickets, not the way they boarded the plane, nothing they brought on board was illegal or banned at that time. You might argue the intent to hijack was illegal but now you're getting into people's thoughts and that scares me.

of course I would - why not ? as for the suggestion that it is somehow 'disrespectful' I would suggest that it would be more disrespectful to those who died if we were to avoid flying on 11 Sept - bowing to fear is saying to the terrorists "OK , You win"

It would be disrespectful NOT to fly on 9/11! You'll be demonstrating that you're afraid of a bunch of terrorists.

I'd fly on 1/11, 2/11, 3/11, 4/11, 5/11, 6/11, 7/11, 8/11, 9/11, 10/11, 11/11, or 12/11! IT'S A FREAKIN' DAY!* Do you ride the train on 3/11? Now, between JFK-LAX , JFK-SFW, Boston-LAX or Newark-SFW-no. Why?
A) No need
B) SFW doesn't exist
But if I had to between NYC (JFK, EWR, LGA, ISP), BOS, SFO, or LAX, I don't mind. The terrorists would have to be really stupid to attack on the same day with tighter security. Might as well walk around with a bullseye on your back.

*"a freakin' day" as in just another ordinary day, except the fact over 3,000 people died five years ago, of which I remember and respect those people.

And at what point is it disrespectful? If you applied that rule to every plane crash that happens because its "disrespectful" you'd be a vegetable, You'd never move, like Kaz said you need to grow up.

Flew AA on 9/11/05 CVG-ORD-JAX

Ironically the last time I flew before 9/11/01 was about three weeks before. While on final to SFO (I was traveling SAN-SFO-NRT-FUK) on UA 930 the captain came over the PA saying not to be startled as an AA flight was also on final off to our right. While it may have been no big deal at than time I'm curious if he still gave his warning after 9/11.

Of course I'd travel on 9/11 if I have to. At this point it is just another day. Unfortunately because of too many peoples beliefs or superstitions they will never fly on that day.

I was extremely saddened and depressed when it happened, because I used to work in Res for AA during that time. You can only imagine what went through my head during that point in time.

Quite frankly, and not to sound insensitive, I have moved. I do not think about that anymore. I think for today, not yesterday nor 4 years ago.

Good on ya! I hate those hijackers not only for the despicable loss of life they caused, but also for the effect they had on the airline industry. They want to scare us into avoiding air travel. To an extent, that's what happened shortly after that fateful day. Things still aren't completely the same. IMO, airport security can never be completely impenetrable. Our best defense is our own alertness. These days, I don't suppose a terrorist would get very far through the cabin before he would be taken down by a mob of passengers.
