    Too bad. Statistically speaking it's about the safest thing you can do.

    Some people need to be partisan about literally anything.

    Yea, I hear you.

    When I got out of High school I got my A and P license and went to work for a large Carrier as a Mechanic working on a Variety of Aircraft including 737's.

    I can tell you from experience that these jeststs have redundancies on top of redundancies on a variety of systems and subsystems.

    You are far safer in a 777 than you are driving to the airport in your own vehicle.

    Sometimes things go wrong during a flight and back up sytems kick in and the passengers are not even aware.

    We also had a small FBO across the ramp from us that hangered corporate jets like Lear 25s and Challenger 600s and one Gulfstream 3 and single engine Pipers and the dreaded " V tail doctor killers " ( its what we called the Bonanza's with a ruddervator " )

    They lost a enough of the single engine small planes to make me NEVER want to step foot in a small Aircraft like a piper Warrior.

    But the jets are very safe.

    Thats not entirely true.

    Some policies WILL pay if the Policy holder committed suicide.

    The Policy has to be active for a minimum of 2 years typically. Also if the Policy holder had a history of Depression that was being managed through a Physician the Insurance company WILL pay on a Suicide claim.

    They treat depression like any other life threatening disease.

    As far as the life insurance of the passengers is concerned, it would be homicide.

    May be so, but on the ground you may have some chance to avoid collision, depending on circumstances. In the air, you just go down and there isn't a darn thing you can do. Its the feeling of helplessness, but I can't speak for the member.
