Quoting rcair1 (Reply 16):

Regardless of one's political views on outsourcing (and I certainly have mine), the answer is very clear.

A 777 has NEVER had a fatal accident in 19 years. The 767 has only had one due to faulot of the airplane (not counting 9/11 or ET or the CFIT, etc) and that issue was very quickly fixed (the Lauda thrust reverser). Likewise, there has never been a fatal 757 accident due to fault of the airplane (they were pilot errors, maintenance errors and 9/11).

Does that answer the question as to how safe Boeing airplanes are?

When are F9 and B6 going to merge?

Virgin America will be out of business anytime now.

UA sucks.

AA Sucks.

WN is rumored to be ETOPS certified soon and flying to Hawaii.

AS and DL merger date?

A380 to Hawaii?

DEN is a bloodbath and F9, UA, or WN will have to downsize and make it a focus city or leave it all together by the fall.

A318/319/320 are worth more as parts than to resell them on the used market.

Same with 73's.

The most beautiful aircraft ever created is the 747.

Richard Branson is an idiot.

Ryanair will start charging for toilet use.
