Visit http://www.amigoingdown.com - key in your local airport, your destination, airline company, type of plane and month of the year during which you travel. And it will calculate your change of survival (or your chance of going down).
I found it amusing/appalling/disturbing [delete as appropriate]

Hehehe. Interesting. I just found out my chances of going down on Aeroflot's ORD-SVO flight with a Boeing 767-300ER are 1 in 2,017,929. Not bad!

The site is fun if you know better and not take anything seriously... I just found out its safer to fly a Air France Dornier 228 from Amsterdam to Mexico than to take a 747 ! And I wonder why they dished up a 1 on 144 mln chance if I fly a Southwest 737 from LVG to IAH while WN never had a crash, while an Air France Airbus 340 which also doesn't have had any fatal accidents has a chance of 1 on 1.9 milion. But lets hope scared travellers will never actually decide on flying with the help of this novelty thing.


nobody has ever died from hard work, but why take the risk?

Okay guys, I see that some of you also found it a little amusing. But please don't take it seriously, it obviously isn't.

Aloha!

LOL, you need to check out the most unsafe route to fly!

It's Iraq to Iran, with odds of dying at 1 in 302,333!

Now that's a high risk...duh!!!
