According to the film 'Rainman' Qantas has never been involved in any loss of life accident, although I know since the film they had a plane leave the runway upon landing (though no loss of life or injuries I believe).

I tried a search on WNs accident record, and I didn't find any, I also bet that neither F9 or B6 have had accidents either, but that is probably since they are so young and fly very new planes.

I don't know how to find accidents for the rest of the world, but try this for US airlines if you want to

Although Southwest had a landing accident in BUR a few years back, they have never been involved in a fatal accident. (Come to think of it though, a SWA passenger was beaten to death by other passengers when he tried to storm the cockpit). Also, I believe Hawaiian Airlines has gone without a fatal accident as well. And yes, Qantas.

Nope I don't remember that. My bad. Glad to know that no one died. How come that didn't come up in my search? I searched for all accidents fatal and non-fatal from the earliest possible date (1962, before WN existed) till yesterday. That can't possibly count as an incident can it?

Thanks for correcting my mistake

Thinking of the top of my had, I know that Finnair never had any incidents in all the years they've been operating. Also, many new eastern european carriers are too young to have the history of accidents. Air Baltic comes to mind as an example.

Good point Rootsgirl, if we consider all the minor and the just-started airlines we're gonna find a lot of them without any accident/incident.

Totally incorrect. This has been said several times before, but Qantas has had fatal accidents before. Qantas just hasn't had a fatal jet aircraft accident. A list of Qantas' fatal accidents:

  • 16 July 1951: VH-EBQ, de Havilland Drover II, Near Lae, New Guinea (7 fatalities)
  • 11 October, 1944: VH-ABB, Short S-23 flying boat, Sydney, Australia (1)
  • 26 November, 1943: VH-CAB, Lockheed L-18-56 Lodestar, Port Moresby, New Guinea (15)
  • 22 April, 1943: VH-ADU, Short S-23 flying boat, Off Port Moresby, New Guinea (13)
  • 20 February, 1942: VH-USE, deHavilland DH-86, Off Belmont, Brisbane, Australia (9)
  • 15 November, 1934: VH-USG, de Havilland DH-86, Near Longreach, NSW, Australia (4)
  • 24 March, 1927: G-AUED, de Havilland DH-9C, Tambo, Qld, Australia (3)


Many airlines have not had fatal accidents, but most have had incidents that warrented a report to the government. Even JetBlue and Frontier have had reportable incidents.


Quoting Newark777 (Reply 7):

I believe the NTSB's criteria has a lot to do with the amount of damage that occurred and the cost of the damage. Once you pass the accident threshold, the NTSB classifies it either fatal or nonfatal.

Dont forget QANTAS also like running off the end of runways, breaking the back of a 747, being told by the Boeing reps it was a write-off, but having James Strong concerned for QANTAS's image regarding never lost a turbine aircraft, saying NO! it will fly again no matter what the cost......

ATA hasn't had a fatal accident in its 30+ years of flying some rather incredible flights; nor has their former regional airline Chicago Express in its over 10 years of service in the midwest.

That's right... the B744 that ran off the runway at BKK.
Funny thing is that after repairs, I believe QF offloaded that particular B774 quick smart. Is that correct?
who is operating that aircraft now?

Having said than an ATR landed in ATH last week minus the front wheel.

Actually, he wasn't beaten to death. It was likely a combination of his severely agitated state combined with lack of oxygen as they held him down. Really a sad story, as he was just out of high school and had actually been a very popular kid, athlete and excellent student. He just went crazy.

As is though, the landing accident at BUR was WN's only real accident and no one was killed.

What exactly is considered an accident or incident? It can be quite vague depending on who you ask. I actually covered this in a class this semester. Aviation Safety Program Management. I need to look and see what the book said as the exact answer.

I believe the original Midway Airlines (ML) that operated from 1979 to 1992 never had an accident. I don't recall the second Midway Airlines, which started out with a hub at MDW, but moved it to RDU, ever having an accident, but I'm not absolutely certain.
