After watching a video on how a major aircraft manufacturer builds their planes, I am considering avoiding flying on them. I usually fly between Austria and northern Germany.
If I wanted to never board certain types of aircraft on those routes, how can I do it?
I am aware of three obvious options:
- Travel by rail.
- Look up Wikipedia pages of airlines operating in this region and see whether or not they have any airplanes I consider unsafe. For example, according to the Wikipedia page about Eurowings, this company only has several Airbus and one Boeing 737-800 aircraft. Then I can decide whether or not I feel comfortable flying those airplanes.
- When buying a ticket, look at the aircraft type (if it is specified).
The problem with the second and third approaches could be codeshare agreements when the airline operating the flight is different from the one selling the ticket. I am not sure whether or not such agreements are practiced in the region in question.
