    Glad I'm not flying to the U.S. anytime soon. It was already difficult to fly through American airspace before, even for connecting flights, but now this. I don't see how this knee-jerk reaction is going to really prevent anything. The act already happened.

    My question is... why is security in North America being increased so drastically when the passenger came from Amsterdam? Shouldn't our governments be putting pressure on the departure countries too? I haven't heard any statements put out by the Netherlands about this.

    Furthermore, why is Canada being hit with these restrictions when terrorist acts have never originated from our country?

    Let's recall some facts about the Nigerian:
    - paid cash
    - one-way ticket
    - Nigerian citizen
    - had recently traveled to Yemen
    - was on a list

    Red flag anyone?

    Maybe we shouldn't be hassling every day people with more security measures, and hassle our authorities instead? They were the ones who messed up, not us.
    It was a big effort, but we finally found a way to keep you out of here.
