Sick of Pains on the Plane? Airport Program Stresses How to De-stress

Employees at Newark Liberty International Airport are getting a dose of patience and politeness as they prepare to handle the crush of holiday travelers.

They're taking part Wednesday in a program called Resiliency Edge, which has already been used at JFK airport.

The program teaches airport employees how to handle stressed-out travelers, delays and security issues. It's an outgrowth of "Reclaiming the Sky," a nonprofit group that supported aviation workers after the Sept. 11 terror attacks.

Hundreds of airport workers are expected to participate in the training and travelers are welcome to watch.
