Many air travelers, both passengers and pilots, have expressed their frustration with the full body scanners and enhanced pat-downs enacted by the Transportation Security Administration earlier this month. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano say our privacy is a small sacrifice for our safety, but many people don't think this is a tradeoff they want to accept.

So we wondered ... how much havoc or delays could scanning boycotters really cause? To get some answers, we're turning to Barbara Peterson, the senior aviation correspondent at Conde Nast's Traveler magazine and Chris Yates, an aviation security consultant. We'll also hear how you, our listeners, are planning to travel this week.
