$26 billion lost in 2007 due to air security measures, according to Travel Industry Association (TIA) in a  report that stated consumers avoided close to 41 million air trips in 2007 because of flights delays, extra baggage fees and avoidance of flying, thanks to cumbersome procedures from air security measures.  The fallout meant a loss of $26 billion in revenues in the U.S. Many who would have taken their vacation to another state or destination requiring air travel apparently changed their travel plans.
