Abstract

Use of airlines in the act of terrorism have yielded increasingly clever methods in attempts to overcome added layers of security. It is hypothesized that a point will be reached in the amount of security procedures and discomfort such that vexing factors overcomes the implicit pleasures of flying. At what point will leisure travelers opt to select destinations accessible by other means of transportation. A survey instrument developed to examine the attitude-behavior constructs of air travelers in this regard has the potential to shed light on the restriction of air travel caused by this source of irritation.
