comment China Airlines, safe?
Well, when I'm flying it tends to be for 12+ hours non-stop 35,000ft in the air. When I'm driving, its for an hour and I can easily pull over and get out if smoke starts billowing from the engine. Whilst statistically they may be similar, there's more chance you can manage the situation in car than in a plane (unless you're the pilot, of course). I'll take losing power to the engine(s) in a car any day over a plane :)

Thanks for the link. I've heard about the statistics before--that flying is safer than driving in general--but are you sure about flying with a dodgy airline is safer than driving a good car?

Good to know, thanks. There's quite a few people with negative opinions of CA on The Aviation Herald, but to be fair there's only been a couple of incidents in the past few years so maybe they've sorted their act out.

Thanks, good to hear. That's at least one survivor then... Though I have to say your avatar isn't the most reassuring ;)
