Airline Quality

Mon Jun 19, 2000 7:23 am

Concerning the Quality in technic, safety and Pilot's training: what do you think (and perhaps for what reason) is the best Airline in this category?

For me there is: Swissair

Swissair because of a very good precision in maintenance and technic (--Sair Technic), and because of one of the very best Pilots-and Pilot-training.

What airlines you think?

I think it has to be Aer Lingus. They have not had a crash in a long time. I allway thought it was SR antil SR111  !

Certainly BWIA West Indies Airways. They have performed all levels of checks on their MD83s and TriStars for over a decade. They have such an impressive reputation that several other carriers send their planes by them for servicing and heavy maintenance.

BWIA has, after all, been serving the Caribbean and the world for 60 years without a fatal accident ever. That reputation alone speaks volumes.

Hop to it, fly for life!
