Why do all of you like AA? They are one of the most unsafe airlines in the world. They are the #1 airline in the US and Canada to have the most fatal incidents. I have never and will never fly AA.

Let me get something straight...If you were reading any statistics about AA safety with any slightest hint of 9/11 in them, you should check your resources. Otherwise, I do side with you on the fact that AA sucks, period. They have a very cold atmosphere to their crew, and, contrary to popular belief, I have had about the same on-time luck with AA than I have had with UA. How about that? Anyway, I hope you are successful in your goal of boycotting AA.

Regards,
Adam

American has had 0.53 fatal accidents per ONE MILLION flights, which is better than Continental, Aloha, Air Canada, TWA, USAirways, Aeromexico, Air France, Swissair, just to name a few. And United is only .03 better. Obviously, 9/11 has made American Airlines appear statistically worse than it really is in terms of its own safety practices. Even still, American got an "A" rating by Air Safety Online.

Hey Tekel,

The better question is, why do you HATE AA? Seriously? Are you just so myopic that you can't see beyond your own skewed statistics or bitter hatred of an airline that you can't be objective? What's your deal, Sally? C'mon, enlighten us.

if you want to diss an airline's safety record, diss Cubana (24 accidents out of 1 million flights...or 8 out of 0.33 million)...I feel completely safe boarding an AA flight and look foreward to my next one...

Don't post crap like this with no factual basis.

AA probably doesn't need someone like you anyways.

There is no real way to say if an airline is safe or unsafe. For example, look at CO/CO Express. They have had five accidents since 1970, more accidents/million flights than any other major, yet only one of those(Brasilia flight) had all passengers die, 1 had half the pax die, one 1/3, one had 2 die, and one had one person die.

I have been flying AA for my whole life and had a few mechanical delays(not a lot, but a few) and quite frankly, I am glad they occurred.

I am flying AA next week and I have always felt safe boarding an AA aircraft and I feel no different flying AA next week.

Next time, back up your statements with some facts.

Also, I would like to know WHY you hate American.

Clearly a lot of people on this forum(including me) like them and American has had a lot of success in its history. Clearly it must be doing something right.

I have never been on AA, but I trust them when it comes to saftey. I have heard different things about their service. Some like them, some hate them. Me? I don't know, haven't flown on them!



Mmmm forbidden donut.

Have you ever heard of free speech? My god...

First of all, I don't like American because their operations are so much like UA, they seem to be copying everything UA does.

Second of all, they have had the most non-9/11 plane crashes in the US.

Thirdly, the most latest plane crash in the US that was not 9/11 related dealt with an AA A300.

I just don't like AA's practices.

I guess now that I think about it, AA isn't that terrible. They have plenty of flights per day without incident.

I probably will not get the chance to fly AA though since they are usually more expensive than the other airlines.

Free speech is alive and well here, but if you say things that are not true or not well supported, be prepared for other members to invoke their free speech!

25 years ago United was the established number one carrier in the US, Eastern was number two, and American was down there about the same size as TWA and a couple of others.

Since that time, AA has built itself to the number one position by being the most innovative of all the major carriers in the world. It invented the frequent flier program, it invented modern yield management, and became the leader it is today, NOT BY copying everything UA does.

kind regards,
