I certainly do not and with the ever-expanding terror threat, I think it's reasonable to be afraid in foreign airports. The only airports I feel safe in are any in the UK and USA. What are your thoughts about foreign airports?

I don't think the probability of attacks happening in most other places is much higher than in the UK and USA.

I certainly do, in foreign airports you're through security in less than 30 mins, in the UK and USA it can sometimes take hours

Yes... I don't think there'll be as many terrorist attacks in Asia, especially China and HK compared to the UK and USA.

I was in Brussels a few weeks after the attacks. We used the other airport to fly back and it was rammed with security.

Generally though I feel fine in airports.

Yeh usually after a terror attack its probably the best time to fly due to the increased security

I don't feel safe in UK airports nevermind foreign ones! But I have to go through airports to get to the plane which will take me somewhere with better weather than the UK or back home which I like. I find them inconvenient more than dangerous.

I personally don't worry about flying , statistically chance of dying is 1 in 7.6 million in a commercial jet and that's not excluding failed landings etc.

God some people are so scared of such petty things like this im surprised theyre not agorophobic...

Its an airport so what? no different than a football stadium, a bus etc.

air travel is the safest means of transportation and the check in is no exception.
