I think Mesaba busted up a turbo prop around Duluth a few winters back and I don't think there were survivors.
Aloha...Dont forget that flight attendant on the 737 with metal fatigue.
Which National are you talking about? The National of the 60's and 70's based in FLA had a fatality in Pensacola in the late 70's. 727 landed into the bay and one was killed or drowned trying to get out.

Your list has an error - Aloha Airlines lost a flight attendant, Clarabell Lansing, when the top blew off 737-200 N73711 on April 28th 1988. Also, Ozark Airlines lost FH-227 N4215 on July 23rd, 1973 in a crash that killed 38 people.

I don't know what Syrianair is. Both Syrian Airways and Syrian Arab Airlines have had fatal accidents. Ghana Airways lost one passenger in a DC-3 crash on April 24th 1969.

What was the source of this list? It's so horribly wrong.

Sabena? Aloha? Pan Am (at least the first incarnation)? Airtours (remember Manchester)? No fatalities? What?

BWIA has been around for at least 50 years serving the Caribbean without a single fatality. I put it up there with Qantas.

I think airlines with small fleets with in-house maintenance (trusted to do maintenance work for other airlines) tend to be the safest.

I think jetBlue should be careful to investigate the practices of the maintenance company which does its maintenance. Heaven forbid there is a fatal crash jetBlue's reputation will be shattered and the media will have a field day with headliners like "Unsafe airlines with sub-standard maintenance".

>South West had a bad accident with a 737-325<

It was a Southwest (1 word) 737-3T5. I remember when that plane did that slide at BUR. The nose of the airplane was maybe 10 feet from hitting a pump at a gas station. Indeed, N668SW was destroyed, but no one was hurt. They have one of the best safety and MX records ever. Also, considering the fact that Mandarin is related to CI, they have had some incidents

Britannia has had fatalities, when an aircraft crash landed at GRO on 14th September 1999. I think 2 prople died. I know one had a heart attack in hospital a few days after the accident, I think they classed it as a fatality of the accident,

There was one "fatality" - the gas station closed. It was really convienent for filing up your rental car before returning it.

"South West had a bad accident with a 737-325." No-one died.

"Mandrian had a big accident with the MD-11 where every one died." You would think so, surveying the wreckage. But the toll was only a few, I think three (someone above said it was one, which is possible, but I think it was actually three).

AA54Heavy; The Mandarin Airlines crash actually killed 3 people, still a miracle it wasn't more!

Alcregular; No one was killed in the actual crash, but one elderly man died five days later from a heart attack at his hotel, so it could not defiantly be linked with the accident.

Ah, the Valujet Syndrome. The crash of Valujet 592 put not only maintenance practices on the spot, but also LCCs and new entrants (not all new entrants are LCCs). Valujet was a media and investor darling before that crash, afterwards they were pariahs to the people who were championing them months earlier.


As for the original list, a number of those airlines have gone out of business (SABENA, Vanguard, Atlantic Coast Jet [Atlantic Coast merged it back into the rest of the airline], SkyTrek for example) or there have been multiple incarnations of the name (Pan Am, Midway, Ozark).

I think QF has had some fatalities in the early years which were omitted in the film Rain Man which lead to that Urban legend that QF has never had a fatality. Can any A-net member confirm this?

Someone really needs to get out more if this is what they have time to do.

There are many flaws in this list.... Business Express had a fatal accident back in the early 90's with a BE1900. All three crew members where lost when the plane crashed off Block Island, NY during a training flight. This accident was actually cover on a tv special a few years back due to inconsistency found in the NTSB report.

......and Pan Am...!!!!??? Please...!! I think they STILL hold the most fatalities for one accident...!! No, QANTAS is still fatality free... in fact just a few short years ago they had their first serious incident with an aircraft over 90 years.!!

Pualani Qantas has had a few minor incidents but has never had a fatal accident in its 70 year history.
Also worth mentioning all major Australian airlines Qantas,Virgin Blue,Jetstar and REX have a clean slate Big grin

Ansett,Compass or Impulse never had a fatality during their time either.

Lauda777, your sweeping statements about the airlines in Australia are completely incorrect.

From http://www.planecrashinfo.com/ for Qantas -

24/03/1927 deHavilland DH-9C, 3 on board, 3 fatalities.

15/11/1934 deHavilland DH-86, 4 on board, 4 fatalities.

20/02/1942 deHavilland DH-86, 9 on board, 9 fatalities. "Crashed shortly after takeoff after losing control in low clouds."

22/04/1943 Short S-23 flying boat, 13 on board, 13 fatalities. "Stalled and crashed into the water during an emergency landing on the open sea."

26/11/1943 Lockheed Lodestar, 15 on board, 15 fatalities. "Flew into a hill shortly after talking off from Ward's Strip."

11/10/1944 Short S-23 flying boat. 30 on board, 1 fatality. "Crashed while attempting to land."

16/07/1951 deHavilland Drover. 7 on board, 7 fatalities. "Crashed into the Huon Gulf after the center propeller failed."

They've had no fatalities since then.

Ansett lost a DC-4 in 1950 (28 killed out of 29), a Viscount in 1961 (all 15 killed), another Viscount in 1966 (all 24 killed).

TAA lost an F-27 Friendship in 1960 (all 29 killed).

Research is the key to knowledge people!

Not only did the original National lose the one passenger in PNS, but also the one man that died when the DC-10 he was in had an explosive decompression over New Mexico.

Not to be too picky but, Pan American Airways was not the correct name of the original company, it was Pan American World Airways.

Thank you for putting the record straight. The 52 people who've lost their lives in Qantas accidents deserve better than to be deleted from history by this urban legend.

Actually, QANTAS' no fatalities record is for the jet era. QANTAS has not had a fatal accident involving jet aircraft. Hawaiian is the oldest airline that has not had any accident related fatalities.

Just a short list of some Aussie Airlines that have never had any accidents:
-Impulse
-Skywest
-Alliance
-Macair
-AeroPelican
-Regional Express/REX
-Compass (Now Defunct)
-East West (Can't Confirm - Now Defunct)
-Jetstar
-Virgin Blue
-Kendell
-Pacific Blue (Virgin Blue subsidiary)
I'm sure there's more, such as the Qantas-Owned Regionals but I cant find anything.

Ah, yes, the QANTAS "no accidents" myth.

Made all the more bizarre by the fact that QF's safety record is among the best in the world, and needs no artificial embellishment.

It does, however, seem improbable that any airline will ever be able to approach Southwest's level of safe operations, especially based upon the number of cycles they have operated, and continue to operate. Success like that is never an accident; it derives from a commitment to professionalism and safe operations which flows from the top down.

South West had a bad accident with a 737-325

Correction, Southwest had an incident at BUR. The way that it's been described to me (someone please correct me if I'm wrong) is that the FAA denotes accidents as involving loss of life; other than that it's considered an incident.

I think it is not fair for such comparison. AA for example has so many flights a day that probability that it will be involved is higher than say a small airline operating only a small fleet of a handful of planes.

Many of the airlines listed have only been formed in recent years, some have since ceased operations, and others are relatively small, so it should be expected that they have had no fatalities.

Airtours (now My Travel) was not the airline involved in the Manchester crash. It was British Airtours, which was then the charter subsidiary of BA, but went on to become Caledonian Airways, then JMC and is now Thomas Cook.

As Airbus Lover says it is not fair for such comparison. BA has hundreds of flights per day and has (through its predecessors) been around for many years including those years when flying was risky, yet their safety record is excellent.

EI lost a DC3 in Wales in the early 1950's with fatalities.

More recently an EI Viscount, routing ORK to LHR crashed into the Irish sea near Tuskar Rock with the loss of all onboard.

OHLHD, Finnair has had two fatal accidents during the 50's & 60's (I think). They called themselves Aero at that time. But the company's history books includes Aero when they tell about the long history of the airline. It's just convenient to forget that when talking about negative things. The two crashes were domestic DC3 and Convair flights.

The safety comparisons of airlines are commonly made in relation to fatalities/flown passenger miles. Big airlines lead these statistics.

Depends if you include those that have died mid flight of things such as heart attacks etc

Just my little contribution:

Cronus Airlines and Air Greece which merged to form Aegean Aviation had no fatalities since their formation

Small correction: The NTSB, and not the FAA, determines an accident to be an occurrence, during the time from boarding to deplaning for the purpose of flight in an aircraft, in which fatal injury OR severe structural damage to the aircraft in incurred.

Paraphrasing. See NTSB 830 in the regulations, as published in the FAR/AIM.
