“It’s complete disaster and chaos. ... I haven’t seen anything this bad since 9/11.” -- Oklahoma City attorney Bill Federman, who missed his Continental Airlines flight home from the Northeast because of long lines at the airport

“The last flight I enjoyed was on a DC-3. I flew from Lawton to Dallas. For any travel in a six-hour distance, take the car. If it is longer than that, I’ll leave a day earlier. I’m not flying unless it is a small prop plane. I’ve always thought the airports are time-consuming anyway, especially now with the security checks. It (Thursday’s events) makes me a little more apprehensive and nervous to travel.” -- Frank Ray, 58, Oklahoma City

“When I watched the news this morning, I was naturally concerned about what was going on in England. However, I feel like there are many people out there doing their best to stay on top of any potential terrorism threat and protect this country. May God be with all of them.” -- Sandra Gilley, 56, Oklahoma City

“I just traveled from England on Tuesday. I am glad that I flew back when I did. Their security is already very tight and takes more time than the United States. I could not imagine how long it took today.” -- Michael Raff, 35, Moore
