Realistically China Airways is as safe as any other major airline. That's not to say that there couldn't be a safety issue on them tomorrow, just like there could be on any airline - but realistically the odds are incredibly low. Historically (going back 15-20 years or more) they did have a relatively poor reputation for safety, however in recent years ...

China Airlines is in the IATA IOSA registry. See How are safety standards enforced in an airline which is not IOSA certified? for more on IATA IOSA. Further, China Airlines is allowed to fly commercial flights from the United States (for eg CI-7 LAX-TPE) and the EU (for eg CI-66 AMS-BKK) both. The safety regulations for those are extremely strict.

I found a site about plane crashes. It seems a little morbid, but has a lot of information about plane crashes, including accidents history, statistics and events by airline. According to them, the last crash by China Airlines was in 2002. They had a bad time in the 80's and 90's, when they crashed 8 times. It seems to me they have learned form their ...

The Galilee region of Israel is considered quite safe, and is not near any of the hot spots you are concerned about. You're more likely to be bitten by a scorpion. The Jesus Trail FAQ goes into some more detail, and says in part: The Galilee region is quite stable. There is always some risk associated with hiking and camping alone in any part of the ...

Costs are from a few hundred per day. Some of these are not very isolated - only a few hundred yards from other cottages across the water, and may have boaters coming close to the island. All of ...

The short answer is YES. When I first told my father that 'harlem' is actually in Manhattan - he tough I was joking. He always perceived Harlem as a very violent place. When I took him to Harlem (it took me a while to convince him) he couldn't believe that this area is actually...normal. I think the biggest confusion most people have about Israel is that ...

Right. I have two flatmates at present - a Mexican guy and a German girl. Both have been to these places, so I asked for their knowledge of the area. Mexican - it's totally fine. It's like tourists to Sydney being told 'watch out for sharks in the water' - yes, crime exists, but it's not likely to happen to anyone passing through. It's more likely to ...

As a very general rule, flights via any airline between airports that most people travel between are extremely unlikely to result in a fatality. If you count safety as being "walking off the plane alive" then most airlines are "safe enough". ie The chances of dying on a low class airline's flight on an other than backblocks route is minimal - and even the ...
