As a doctoral student, author Byron Cherry researched and studied the airline industry for two years. His case study outlines his findings and how passengers' perceptions of airline safety and airline security have changed since September 11, 2001. Cherry interviews many subjects who provide such varied answers to his question about fear of another terrorist attack as 'I am more afraid of thunderstorms and microburst than I am of terrorism," to 'I fear another attack someday will occur due to human error or a daring attack not unlike 9/11." Cherry brings to the forefront the major issues that have emerged since 9/11, such as poor passenger screening methods. He also explains the implications for leaders within the airline industry and the federal government, details the limitations of the study, and makes recommendations for future research. September 11, 2001, was a day that most Americans will never forget as long they live. Are We Safer Now? Airline Security in a Post-9/11 Society offers an interesting glance into understanding the factors that influenced the change in passengers' perceptions of how safe they really are when traveling by air.
