Many travelers being cautious at CVG airport

HEBRON, KY (FOX19) - On Monday, hundreds of passengers went through airport security, mindful that the most wanted man in the world was killed less than 24 hours ago.

One of those passengers, Melissa Conlan, was flying home to Phoenix.

"First I was nervous when the news hit last night, but now not so much," said Conlan. "I figure if they are going to plan anything, it is going to be in a few days and they probably wouldn't hit us the same way as the did before via the airport."

A group from Louisville was leaving for Paris, France. In three weeks, that same group will depart from Amman, Jordan to come home. Amman is still thousands of miles from Pakistan, but sits in the restless Middle East.

"When my time comes, it come, but hopefully it is not in the next three weeks," said Norma Mouser. "But we will be extra cautious."

Many passengers feel the death of Osama bin Laden will greatly reduce the power of Al Qaeda, but believe there will be some sort of retaliation.

"I think that it is important he is gone, but I don't think we are that close to an end of Al Qaeda," said Andrew Clark.

"There could be some repercussions, but we never know and I'm just thrilled he's gone," said Mouser.

As of Monday night, TSA has not issued any new alerts.
