After speaking to a few people, they say that they would not fly Singapore Airlines now. Personally, I cannot understand why. Latest reports say that it was a combination of SIA pilot error and Taipei's Chiang Kai Shek Airport's fault. Ever airline is eventually going to have a crash. SIA is a great airline in my view and generally I think they have handled the situation with flying colours. Dr. Cheong Choonk Kong, is a great CEO and one other airlines should take a good look at. I will continue to fly SIA because of their service, entertainment, aircraft condition and food. I would be interested to view other people's views on this topic.

If you want anybody's point of view, you can have mine.  By the way, SIA's CEO is Dr. Cheong Choong Kong not Dr. Cheong Choonk Kong. Now, they say they will not fly SIA because of the crash. People are in a dilemna now, they are confused because the real fact to why the plane crashed is still not known. I have to admit I was afraid to fly to Perth at the end of this year when I heard about the crash because I would be flying over the sea not land. I later thought carefully after my parents asked if we still wanted to go, I thought carefully and I realized that I cannot change my opinion of an airline because of one crash. The crash was an accident. The pilot did not mean it to happen. I am now confident and I fully place my trust in SIA to bring me there and back safely. Some people said that their inflight service was not good. When I flew to Sydney about 1 or 2 weeks ago, I had pressure-related nosebleed and one of the stewardesses sat with me throughout the whole landing. My brother had been moved up to Biz class and I guessed he enjoyed it. The stewardess offered me some candy and gave me some to take home, she assured me that it would be a nice landing because the approach wasn't very good. Big thumbs up to that stewardess   I don't know what was her name but my impression of her was a good one and I will never forget that. I have been recieving excellent inflight service everytime I fly.(whenever I fly, it is always SIA, my demand) I hope to get the same type of service when I fly to Perth in December and I have no doubt I shall.

Why is it that people do not trust an airline after 1 mayor accident?????
Such things can happen but lets not forget that Singapore Airlines is the most luxury airline in the world and a very good one too. As far as I know this was their first big accident. It is very likely those things happen to a mayor airline, can you give me the name of 1 big airline who is operative for some years and has had 0 accidents so far?????????????

Neither can I.
