Considering the number of deaths and injuries associated with flying every year, it's extremely safe. My point is that Southwest is not necessarily at fault, as the material used to build the fuselage could have contained undetectable cracks or imperfections of sizes large enough that they would not have been planned for.
    certainly, and I thought the hubub at the time was absurd.

    I just like poking holes

    The only time I've seen the masks drop was on a landing years ago. The pilot hit the runway so hard all the masks came down. Scared the crap out of me.

    Southwest has reported 4 losses in the last 5 quarters.

    The best airline I've ever taken was Air France. I could tell I was back in the states when I came back from Europe LOL

    No, you see it was a play on words because there was a hole in the plane and you said you like poking holes.

    Losses due to changes in accounting. Over their lifetime, they still have a pretty nice profitablility.

    Sinapore air is the bomb. I used to live there and we would always fly with them when we had the chance. Seats lay down like beds and asian slaves are willing to give you an HJ if you asked for it.

    EVA air is great as well. I used to fly from Texas to Japan with them. Great service but one time I had a smelly indian sitting next to me for that long flight. I had to stick some of their breathmints up my nose just so I could fall asleep.
