I think Mesaba busted up a turbo prop around Duluth a few winters back and I don't think there were survivors.
Aloha...Dont forget that flight attendant on the 737 with metal fatigue.
Which National are you talking about? The National of the 60's and 70's based in FLA had a fatality in Pensacola in the late 70's. 727 landed into the bay and one was killed or drowned trying to get out.

Your list has an error - Aloha Airlines lost a flight attendant, Clarabell Lansing, when the top blew off 737-200 N73711 on April 28th 1988. Also, Ozark Airlines lost FH-227 N4215 on July 23rd, 1973 in a crash that killed 38 people.

I don't know what Syrianair is. Both Syrian Airways and Syrian Arab Airlines have had fatal accidents. Ghana Airways lost one passenger in a DC-3 crash on April 24th 1969.

What was the source of this list? It's so horribly wrong.

Sabena? Aloha? Pan Am (at least the first incarnation)? Airtours (remember Manchester)? No fatalities? What?

BWIA has been around for at least 50 years serving the Caribbean without a single fatality. I put it up there with Qantas.

I think airlines with small fleets with in-house maintenance (trusted to do maintenance work for other airlines) tend to be the safest.

I think jetBlue should be careful to investigate the practices of the maintenance company which does its maintenance. Heaven forbid there is a fatal crash jetBlue's reputation will be shattered and the media will have a field day with headliners like "Unsafe airlines with sub-standard maintenance".

>South West had a bad accident with a 737-325<

It was a Southwest (1 word) 737-3T5. I remember when that plane did that slide at BUR. The nose of the airplane was maybe 10 feet from hitting a pump at a gas station. Indeed, N668SW was destroyed, but no one was hurt. They have one of the best safety and MX records ever. Also, considering the fact that Mandarin is related to CI, they have had some incidents

Britannia has had fatalities, when an aircraft crash landed at GRO on 14th September 1999. I think 2 prople died. I know one had a heart attack in hospital a few days after the accident, I think they classed it as a fatality of the accident,

There was one "fatality" - the gas station closed. It was really convienent for filing up your rental car before returning it.

I do remember that one of their planes crashed onto an IL86 in DEL a few years ago and there were fatalities

Pan American Airways

You surely mean their susequent re-incarnation ?

"South West had a bad accident with a 737-325." No-one died.

"Mandrian had a big accident with the MD-11 where every one died." You would think so, surveying the wreckage. But the toll was only a few, I think three (someone above said it was one, which is possible, but I think it was actually three).

AA54Heavy; The Mandarin Airlines crash actually killed 3 people, still a miracle it wasn't more!

Alcregular; No one was killed in the actual crash, but one elderly man died five days later from a heart attack at his hotel, so it could not defiantly be linked with the accident.

Ah, the Valujet Syndrome. The crash of Valujet 592 put not only maintenance practices on the spot, but also LCCs and new entrants (not all new entrants are LCCs). Valujet was a media and investor darling before that crash, afterwards they were pariahs to the people who were championing them months earlier.


As for the original list, a number of those airlines have gone out of business (SABENA, Vanguard, Atlantic Coast Jet [Atlantic Coast merged it back into the rest of the airline], SkyTrek for example) or there have been multiple incarnations of the name (Pan Am, Midway, Ozark).

Someone really needs to get out more if this is what they have time to do.

There are many flaws in this list.... Business Express had a fatal accident back in the early 90's with a BE1900. All three crew members where lost when the plane crashed off Block Island, NY during a training flight. This accident was actually cover on a tv special a few years back due to inconsistency found in the NTSB report.

......and Pan Am...!!!!??? Please...!! I think they STILL hold the most fatalities for one accident...!! No, QANTAS is still fatality free... in fact just a few short years ago they had their first serious incident with an aircraft over 90 years.!!
