HA's record on aviation-safety.net only shows two incidents: a runway overrun on landing at PPT in December 2000, and a DC-3 hijacking in August 1965. Have they really lasted 80 years with no fatal accidents?

Possibly. But I believe in the late 1960s (1969?) there was another incident. An Aloha Airlines Viscount lost steering and brakes and hit a parked Hawaiian DC-9. If memory serves me the Viscount was severely damaged and written off but the DC-9 was repaired and returned to service.

Yes.

The NTSB site shows more incidents/accidents that are not listed on aviation-safety.net.

Did Hawaiian have that 737 that had the top part of the plane rip open with a flight attendant and a few pax go flying out from the plane?

In fact, Hawaiian never operated the 737

Not only was that Aloha Airlines like extspotter said but only a flight attendant was sucked out of the plane. All the passengers were in their seats with their seat belts fastened. While many passengers were injured, none of the passengers were killed.

Yes.

Are there any other airlines in the world that can claim the same thing over a comparable period of time?

Southwest airlines hasn't ever lost a passenger as the result of an accident/incident. Yes, a small boy's life was taken when a plane went through a blast-fence at MDW, but he was not a passenger onboard the aircraft.

Considering we're not the largest airline in the world in terms of passengers carried I'd say that's respectable.

That doesn't his loss any less significant.

I'd say that still qualifies as a "fatal accident."

Qantas has not had a fatal accident in the 'jet age', and think they would come the closest. I think their last fatal was in 1951.

Yes it does.

Finnair has not had a single accident during "the jet age" either.

The last accident the airline had was a crash of a DC-3 during landing in 1963. 22 pax +2 pilots died, 2 pax + 1 FA survived.

Southwest

Quoting WNCrew (Reply 10):

?? Really?

It was, now that Delta and NW are merged, they got SW beat by 19 million at least. Here are the numbers:

Delta Airlines - 161 million passengers
Southwest - 101 million passengers

Now with CO and UA merging, SW will be 3rg after the new UA.

Yes, Southwest is the largest domestic only carrier by passenger count.

I do not recall any HAL fatal accidents. Can someone provide us with some links if anyone knows of any?

No, HA has not had any fatal accidents. We've been flying continuously since 1929, so I think it's a pretty amazing record.

You misquoted him, and didn't include the ENTIRE sentence which in fact says..

I do have to agree, WN still had a Fatal Accident, if we were discussing loss of passengers then WN would be up there for sure.

That is very good to see HA has not had any fatal accidents, passengers or otherwise involved.

I couldn't agree more.. especially when one considers the variety of equipment flown, the lack of land between the USA and eastern Hawaii, plus the high-frequency inter-island flying. Very impressive.

Certainly so. A life is a life.
