People Flying Taking Precautions Due To Swine Flu Concerns

With at least one probable case of swine flu here in the east, even though passengers at one airport in the east aren't afraid to fly, they are taking precautions.

Passengers deplaned from Atlanta where several of them said they saw people wearing masks.

Passengers arriving from Charlotte said they did not see people wearing masks.

Onslow County Airport staff say that they're simply reminding passengers to use common sense.

One passenger said he was flying to Texas to see his parents and said he's not worried a bit.

    While I can see why the airlines/train industries would be unhappy with the VP, he made a good point. If this were a real pandemic situation, it would be wise not to get all cramped up in those situations with an infected person. What is funny to me is how it was reported before the election how intelligent the VP was. His IQ was supposedly reported. Yet, despite that, & his obvious good sense in a worse case scenario, hush him up... My estimation of Biden actually went up a notch as there was "NO transparency" in what he had to say. I admire that in a politician & wish him the best of luck. His speaking engagements may be curtailed though...

    That's just precious....he's flying to Texas but he's not worried a bit....about infecting all of when he returns. Thanks! So much for common sense.
