I want to present yet another article in favour of SIA. I will personally in future fly with them, and although I probably have my most respect to my country´s airline Finnair for NEVER having had to have a serious accident, I will have a place for SIA on my heart as well. Life goes on.
Rgrds for all aviation friends!

Erela:

Finnair has in fact had a serious accident, as shown by aviation-safety.net:

August 11, 1963:
OH-LCA (Douglas DC-3) while on final approach to Mariehamn from Turku, although it was attributed to pilot error (misjudged altitude and hit trees) 22 of 24 people on board (including all crew members) perished. True it was before the advent of the jet engine and Finnair, being in the adverse climate it is in had not had a serious incident since then, but all airlines have had accidents.

Moi,
Kai

You´re right,
but wasn´t it Aero in 1963 and not Finnair yet..? In other words, to be accurate, FINNAIR hasn´t had more than just a few close-by-situations?

On the front of the Singapour jet it said something like 'a great way to fly' well I think it should say 'a great way to die'

PK743 - You are a stupid heartless and childish idiot. That is so stupid and you can't even get your facts straight - It's "Now More Than Ever A Great Way To Fly". Keep your f-ing s*** comments to yourself. Go to hell

Yes, it was Finnair's predecessor, Aero, that had the two fatal hull losses of DC-3s in the sixties. Essentially, however, they are the same company as only the name was changed in 1968.

Still, an outstanding safety record: not a life lost onboard in more than 30 years.

It's time to put 9V-SPK and the whole SQ mess to rest. SQ had a crash: some of us will continue to fly SQ, others won't. These topics have gotten out of hand; *every* airline in the world has had a fatal crash at one time or another. Life goes on, people go back to flying thier favorite carrier, so just let the crap go.

PK743: Should I say your favorite carrier is "a great way to die?" No matter which one it is, I'll have at least one incident to back me up. Get my point??
