would be extremely foolish to try and get milage out of this...particularly with the "our 737s are NJ
types, newer and SAFER".... the word newer..yes...but definately not safer!
The reason is simple. It only takes 1 737NG to crash... let's just say a CO
one crashes in Denver thanks to the rought rocky mountain winds and hits clear air turbulence or something? Very stupid move... both companies aren't that short sighted.
Think of the NW
DC-9 situation. You don't hear AA
making milage out of it? and, since NW
was smart enough to fit new interiors in them, most passengers feel good about their DC-9 flight.
As far as Ozjet is concerned.... let it slide. They're not going to start flying in the next few months anyway, the Australian public will quickly forget a crash in indonesia. (think of the AF
concorde crash... and just a bit before GA
lost an A300 and more ppl died but it didn't make media attention.... the culture is too different etc...it doesn't feel as 'close' to home)
