I want to express my condolances to all victims of this accident and their familes first.I know there are a lot of frequent flyers among us in this forum and also alot of aviation lovers.So my question is this.Will this effect your choice of airline for the next travel(For example instead of taking the AA flight in 1 hour ,waiting for another flight of another airline which departs 3 hours later?)

I don't plan to fly anywhere in the immediate future, but certainly, I would not hesitate to use American. I have always received top notch service from them. In fact, I have never been delayed for any reason other than ATC or weather when travelling with AA, so I certainly have no reason to suspect their maintenance.

No more AA for me for a long time. 2 hijackings and a mechanical crash in just about a two month period is enough for this flyer. I wish AA the best of course. I have always been impressed with the airline when flying with them, but now is a good time to take a hiatus from American. Just my opinion.

Following the reasoning of the nay-sayers on this post, I guess I will only fly Qantas and Southwest from now on, since they are the two major airlines to not have a fatal accident. Maybe I should avoid airlines who equip their wide bodies with GE CF6-80 engines. How ridiculous can one get?

MSYtristar, the hijackings were NOT their fault and no one really knows what happened to the A300 yesterday.
After that crash in the 70's at ORD, no more AADC-10's plummeted out of the sky due to a faulty engine. In fact, I would say that this is the safest time to fly AA because they are more vigilant than they were before the incidents actually happened.

Definitly I will support AA again. They are my favourite major-US airline. Their service is great as well as their aircrafts. I love American Airlines and I will fly with them soon again. I wish them the best and I hope that everyone will continue to travel with them. Go AA, we need American in the airl

Of course I am going to fly AA again. Anybody who knows the facts about aviation would not stop flying AA just because of the last three months. I said it before and I will say it again, if my boss right told me right now he needs me on an AA flight in 2 hours, I wouldn't think twice about it.

Yes, 40000 die in car accidents but people drive cars every day, perhaps a few hours a day. People don't fly as frequently as they drive. So, the statistics need to take this fact into account. You see, if you apply for life insurance and you are a pilot or flight attendant your premium will be higher than a healthy person whose job is not dangerous.
