This is the sad state of air travel these days as the USA warn of possible attacks on Air Uganda planes.


Here is a BBC News article

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/africa/8449965.stm

With this topic in mind, which would you say were the safest carriers and why? Would it be the low cost carriers who are unlikely targets as opposed to the national carriers? I dont have a massive amount of confidence in the security at the moment after recent events.

It would be very difficult to choose one carrier and label it as the safest. Attackers go for their intended target and if that one proves to be too difficult to get, they go for the next best thing. Rather grim prospect, I'd say.

El Al has the reputation as the safest/ hardest for people with bad intent to get aboard.

They do have the most restrictive, intrusive security measures, going well beyond the security of the airport/ country in which their flights operate.

Quoting Putnik (Reply 1):

Yes i agree and, i also agree that it would be foolish to assume such with any carrier or group of carriers.

I was thinking more in the terms of a national carrier possibly being a more prominent target to terrorists, due more to the fact it would be a government that was being hit/targeted as opposed to a private sector company maybe. Not the most pleasant subject but unfortunately topical and actual.
