Just reading the business section of the Washington Post this morning and I came across this article on the front page stating that the rule that no one be allowed to get up out of their seats over Washington Airspace came to an ending last evening. "Homeland Security Secretary Michale Chertoff said earlier this week that the rule was no longer necessary because other security measures are now in place, such as hardened cockpit doors and air marshalls aboard all Washington flights." It also goes on to stat that the highly lucrative shuttle route between Washington and New York has declined 18% over the last 4 years due to the rule that was in place, with passengers opting to take the train instead.
