I think is it the B767 - 300 ER that can fly all weather conditions and fly a long range too.

Do you mean, toughest built, or statistically the least accident prone?

It is more about the airline, not the airplane.

And I think "range" means nothing when it comes to safety, because nobody will ever put a CRJ to fly nonstop LHR-SYD and airplanes usually don't carry more fuel than it is needed for the leg it is flying (plus some extra for "emergencies" like missed approaches or diversion).

The safest plane to fly in air is one that never crashed.  Yeah sure

What do you mean though..? there are thousands of planes that will never have an incident in the air.

I will make it more clear .. I mean the Safest in Terms of Weather Conditons and Long Haul Aircrafts only.
Long Haul might contaiin: B757(certain routes), B 767, B777, B 747, B 737 (certain routes)
A330, A340, A 320/319 (certain routes)

Well statistically the Il-96-300 is the joint safest airliner, despite it's groundings over safety concerns, there have been no losses and no notable incidents encountered by any of the aircraft. Otherwise, the Boeing B777 is the safest Western airliner for long-haul operations that there is, with not a single passenger fatality attributed to the aircraft and not a single hull loss. After that would be the A340 family, again, just as safe as the B777 with nobody actually killed, although there have been several hull losses, most notably being the AF incident in Toronto. The A330 has also had no fatalities in service, although the development model crashed with the sad loss of 7 crew, and other hulls have been lost in corrosion incidents and terrorism. The A380 also has a pretty spotless record so far, but it's unfair to count that as it's not (yet) in revenue service.

No question it's the 777. A flawless safety record and low incident ratio. The modern Airbuses are dependable, although there have been some written off. The 744 is also a safe bet with the extra reassurance of four engines. The 744's safety record is great when compared to earlier 747 models.


There's nothing quite like a tri-jet.

Wow, I'd never think that the IL 96 would be the safest one... My vote would go to the 777 line

Yes, especially considering the grounding of them recently for precautions, but both the IL-96 and the 777 both have no losses and no incidents to their name, save the odd engine chewing itself up.
