I thought most regarded Tu-154 as major crash, considering more people died in that one then on the concorde. Perhaps Russian planes arent counted into statisics because most people expect soviet airliners to crash anyway.......

Each crash gives new informations about how to improve safety.
Safety is always improving. Unfortunately, shit happens, men make mistakes, planes are old and not 100 % safe, and bad luck is sometimes there. I'm sure that speeking about it won't change anything (I'm sure you don't have a black cat AC340), but who knows what will happen in the next months ?

It seems that there is a couple of major crashes each year; last year we had Air France and Singapore Airlines. Lately I've had the feeling that this year has been too quiet. There are loads of airlines that haven't had an accident for decades - QF, BA, LH, IB, OA, DL, CO, CX, AI, SAA, NW, UA... I'm not going to finish the thought, you know what I mean.
