    Number 2. I’ve always wonder about that. You made my day for saying it.

  3. Publicity value isn’t the same as risk of death per mode of transportation.

    Airplane bombings have better “bang per buck” (sorry!) than buses or trains, because blowing up an airplane is treated as a bigger news event than one involving a bus or a train.

    Note also, bombing an airplane uses gravity as a damage-multiplier, in a way which doesn’t work for a bus or a train. That is, a bomb just has to make the airplane unable to fly, and gravity does the rest, whereas making a bus or a train unable to move further doesn’t by itself do damage.
