Certainly we are becoming paranoid in these post 911 days....... Britain, America, Canada, & Holland seemed determined to interupt as many flights as possible. Certainly, to err on the side of caution is sensible, but come on....
During one visit to Israel in 1997, I had the pleasure of having my British Airways flight redirected off the main runway after landing as their was a suspicious package found on board. After 45 minutes we were lead off the plane and bussed to the terminal far off in the distance. Having arrived at Ben Gurion, we were shortly ushered into the centre of the terminal as a bomb threat had been made. During the next three weeks, I made about a dozen trips to and from Ben Gurion and learned quickly that my initial experience is basically a daily occurance at that airport..... I can understand it there.
What is your experience..... We are paranoid...... right? !!
