For CNN safety analyst and former FAA safety inspector David Soucie, wariness of air travel seldom happens for him within the United States.
As a safety and accident investigator, Soucie developed confidence in the U.S.' flight rules and regulations.
"We have a very good system for maintaining those standards," Soucie said on "New Day" Friday.
However, Soucie explained that fastidiousness should come into play for international air travel.
It's harder to discern whether or not foreign countries uphold the same guidelines for air safety, Soucie said, as political climates and bureaucracies are capable of shifting rapidly.
Soucie developed a quick checklist, broken down into the acronym of "S.A.F.E.," in order to attain a sense of control as a passenger.
