Which Airlines (European) Now Have Strict Security measurement in Place-Double Doors and so Forth

Which airlines now at this time have reinforced cockpits and so forth? Which European airlines are the most technologically advanced concerning security?

If El Al can have strict security in place -- secure cockpit doors, sky marshals on each flight -- U.S. airlines could too. If El Al can have strick screening of luggage, U.S. airlines could too.

So why haven't U.S. airlines done this?

Simple. It costs money. And if an airline would have decided to pay their security workers a lot more, have sky marshals on every flight, and implement other security measures, they'd have to raise ticket prices, hoping that people would be willing to pay for extra security instead of refusing to do this and flying with their competitors instead.

Think, BEFORE Tuesday, September 11th, that people would have done this, paid for more security, instead of flying with another lower-cost airline? Hell no. We rarely want to pay for preventative measures unless we can see a real benefit from them.

After Tuesday, September 11th, we can now see the benefit, so now we'll pay.

Just so you're more informed, El Al is a government run/owned airline. It also is losing money.

I do think that all airlines should have reinforced cockpits. And potentially air marshall. Much more effective than taking away peoples' nail clippers.
