As I write this, I notice that already nineteen people have read this topic without replying, so I guess that points out that this might just be an unpopular question.
There are plenty of reasons why this question might just be considered *slightly* oversimplified:
1.) Aircraft crashes do not follow a short-term pattern: their occurance is dominated by randomness rather than anything else. Therefore, there can be times when two or three crashes happen immediately after each other, but then nothing bad happens for months.
2.) In the past years, the tendency has been for air safety to improve, even if the rate of improvement is slowing down.
3.) 2000 is in no way special. It is just a number!
4.) No one can tell what happens in the future, or in the rest of this year
5.) Contrary to popular belief and media propaganda, planes do not usually crash. Accidents can happen. But in general, flying is safe! So do not predict doom looming over our beloved industry! (Wince, cry, howl)
Apart from all that, I'd say 2000 will be a year like any other, except for one thing: The possible return of airborne terrorism. Why oh why had the Indian government given in to those terrorists? They should have destroyed the plane a.s.a.p. and everyone would be safer. But I am not very popular with this statement among my friends...
