Hey friends...

I have a question regarding non revs on a day like 11th of september. I'm flying with a friend from BSL-CPH-EWR-MCO that day on a non-rev ticket.

This might sound like a strange question to you guys, but do you know if that day has less passengers than a "normal" day, because if its history? Or does it have more passengers because if the excitement on traveling that day?

In my experience 2002 and 2003 on 9/11 were light travel days but 2003 was busier then 2002 so as time goes on people are not worrying as much like in the past.

i worked one of our JFK-LGB turns and we had about 80(ish) PAX from JFK-LGB and about 90(ish) PAX for the return flight. like Amwest25 said, as time goes on that particular day will be "history" and it will be a regular flying day for the normal "joe". Fly safe everyone!

A little off the subject, but didn't Spirit offer free tickets on 9/11/02? I don't think anyone specifically avoids that day as a travel day anymore. They might have the first year after the attack, but I didn't see any difference last year.

Ok, thanks guys for the replies. Big grin
It is good to now that 9-11 is still a busy travel day.

Spirit DID, as I recall, Canoe... They were all spoken for in an incredibly short period of time, too, if memory serves. A coworker and I tried to get on-line to snag one, figuring that they'd have a tough time giving them away. WRONG!

Yes, and they still had a fair number of no shows for free tix. I think National had $1 fares,too.
It will just become another travel day. Just like how many people avoid HNL on 12/7 (Dec 7th) these days?

9/11 this year is on a Saturday. I wonder how much the anniversary being on a Saturday vs. a weekday will affect traffic. I would assume that most travel on a Saturday at that time of the year would be mostly leisure pax. There could be some routing and ops issues in the DC/NYC region on that date this year as I believe that President Bush plans to be at the WTC site that date. Many people especially in the NYC & DC areas are going out of there way to not have weddings or other celebrations that day too.

Yep, count me in as one of those people in NYC who opted not to get married on 9/11. We briefly considered it, but quickly rejected the idea in favor of the following weekend. It just seemed disrespectful somehow--although my fiancee wasn't living in NY at the time, I was here and it's still pretty fresh in my mind. Also, at least in the near future, 9/11 would be a crappy anniversary to have, IMHO. But I hear some wedding venues are giving serious discounts that day!
