Sure, I prefer the L-1011 to the DC-10. BUT, I am not at all afraid to fly in a DC-10. I think the integrity of an aircraft is based on how well it is maintained. Just like a car! Furthermore, when talking about the comfort of an airliner, restrict it only to noise, ride, etc. All other things, seats, looks, smell, service, interior condition, is the fault of the airline, not the aircraft.
This is just a little aside. When comparing the safety of aircraft based on the number of crashes, you must consider the number of each type of aircraft built/flown. Therefore, don't go only by number because it tells you nothing. So, please give us percentages, you'll be much more credible.
