Palm strikes are nice and dandy, but you can't use them on someone who's simplay an asshole but still a customer with the number of a good lawyer in his wallet. Also a terrorist threat might weather your flurry of plam strikes to still finish whatever he's got in mind. I do know advanced Krav teaches takedowns etc., but it is mostly a striker game played at striker distance. For airline security IMO you should want more.
Players in that field either start at one point collecting their own toolbox of stuff that works for them outside of schools and styles. Or they, what is more usual, drop out because they feel the style is not going further and they've seen all. Often coupled with a real world experience where their dojo moves failed to work.
My usual recommendation is to look for someone who's actually been there and faced it and learn a few moves from him that work. Then train them to perfection and knee jerk reaction so they'll be actually there when you need them and stress/shock/anger kick in. Ppl should also at one point fight a noncooperative opponent in a suit or mill with their training partners. Sport combat sparring was nice but didn't work for me because all of a sudden a sports oriented rulebook is dropped on your combat training, you work in protective gear nonexistent on the street (gloves) and you incorporate bad habits (like e.g. breaks).
