It's too bad Helios have aquired a bad reputation. A relatively small carrier makes on tragic crash and already is is accused of being an airline from hell. My belief is that if you start an airline and have a crash, you are doomed for life. HOwever, if you start up an airline and run it for several years and get a good reputation, a crash will not affect the reputation at all. Take Air France, for example. They had two notable crashes (Concorde, 340 @ YYZ
in August), and I dont know anyone that thinks less of them. I really do sympathize for Helios.
