Don S on :

The weak security must be pretty scary. With the low-cost airlines which fly to small regional airports, I have to wonder how good the security is at those places? Like around the perimeter of the airport? Maybe it's not that bad. There isn't that much activity in those airports - just a few flights a day, so it's harder for someone to hide in the crowds or as just another airline employee when the employees probably all know each other. This is the first time I've heard of someone trying to get to El Al for a long time. Their security precautions are notoriously thorough.
