Egypt Air Flight 990

Thu Jun 29, 2000 8:09 pm

I had beeen finding out about the crash of Egypt Air Flight 990 on the internet and hearing about the lawsuit. They plan to give the money to the people who had relatives in the crash. Do you think they should be giving this money to the families or not? I don't thnk they should, because it was their consequence to choose Egypt Air.

Is this kind of thing really necessary? At least change your user name to something less offensive and more grown up.

Please. Give me a break.

No one should *ever* expect an airplane, for any airline, to crash. They do crash, yes, but to say that by flying one takes on the assumed risk of dying in a crash is absurd. Generally speaking, it's either the airline that makes a mistake that causes a plane to crash (ie, pilot error, poor maintenance, poor security), or some outside party (ie, the government, as with the Soviets in KAL 007, or the aircraft maufacturer). The only exception to this, that I can think of, is weather. And even then, you can make convincing cases that the airline should not have chosen to fly in poor weather.

We aren't sure exactly what happened in Egypt Air 990, but we do know that someone's liable for what happened. And as a result, the victims' families should get every last penny that they can.

Hey boy,
according to your argumentation, nobody could choose an airline which ever had an accident with fatalities. I don't know how many airlines remain. Not many!

The Egyptians are trying to come out with different theories that it was a mechanical failure rather than the co-pilot diving the aircraft. In last week's issue of Aviation Week & Space Technology Magazine, Egypt Air was saying it was a mechanical failure with the 767's elevators similar to the problem with the 737's rudder.

Mechanical failure.... YEAH! THATS the reason that the nutcase was praying to Allah while leaning on the yoke. If Egyptair got Johnny Cochran they MIGHT have a chance with that one.

I am unsure if the investigation proved it to be mechanical failure. If it was then I believe the airline should pay. If the black boxes had proven that the problem was that the pilot was so devout he threw up his hands and tried to pray the plane back up, I think the airline should pay because they hired a wingnut and failed to do proper psychological assesments of their pilots. Either way, the airline should pay. Their plane, their responsibility.
