The point isn't just that more people die in cars, because of course more cars are on the road at any given time.

Rather, by going for a flight for so and so long, you're still less likely to die than by driving the same amount of time (in general). So the its also true like-for-like -- you are simply safer in a plane versus a car.
the most accurate n logical way to compare is by per km per yr worldwide.

ie fatality rate for
air travel: x.xxxx/km.yr
automobile: x.xxxx/km.yr
railway: x.xxxx/km.yr
ferry: ...............
etcetc whatever..........blablabla, lolololol:))))...............

seems by air will be the winner due to the mileage:)))..............

If you want to compare fatality rates you would really have to exclude commercial aircraft.

Comparing the safety record of a two hundred million dollar plane serviced by an army of technicians to a two thousand dollar car that runs on the smell of an oily rag is not really useful.

And planes really do fly in separate lanes in highways in the sky. They don't fly in crowded environments full of roundabouts, traffic lights, stop signs all monitored by one individual behind a wheel.

The last two Boeing crashes didn't even involve another plane and therein lies an important tale.

Even if we were to take small steps to improving safety along aviation lines, the cost of car travel will move out of the reach of many.

Air travel is safe because more money is spent on making it safe.

We feel more unsafe in an airplane simply because we are not in control. If I drive my car I still am in control of the accelerator and the break. It is silly to assume that there are no external factors but it is merely a psychological feeling that air travel is less safe. Another is certainty of death. There is certainty of death 30,000 ft above the ground. The same is not true in a motor vehicle accident. The chances of survival in a fatal car crash are probably more than that of a fatal aeroplane crash.

lolololol man........why flying empty:?)) testing:?)) any product even the worst 1 should have certain market share no matter how small dat'd b:))).......

plenty suicidals n euthanasians popping up all the time, get them on board 4 free tripping around world, much better than diy their own n got bit $$ for being test dummies of boering max, as they'd get nothing if diy. if happen no crash, free trip around world b4 crash. wing-wing solution:)))..............

It depends how high up you are. If something happens at 37,000 feet which causes a sudden loss of pressure, then you’ll likely be asphyxiated and not be conscious to suffer what happens next. In the case of the two recent crashes, it happened so early in the flight that even if it was a loss of cabin pressure, the altitude wouldn’t have been sufficient for this to happen.
Another Reason I utterly hate planes
Very reassuring

America was very late in grounding the planes and it was lax American regulations that killed two planes full of people, so your nauseating thank you is misplaced.

It's good indeed that it was done, but you deserve praise for acting quickly and not for following the crowd.

There’s been new information on the certification on the plane and airworthiness.

EASA and FAA had certified the modification conditionally requesting emergency procedures to be teached and practiced for cases the automatic system fails.

That education was never given, and the feature and means to switch the system off was not added to the pilot’s manual.

There may be severe consequenses for such neglection. Few families have filed a lawsuit in the US against Boeing.

Also, after the first crash the airline had offered a deal for the families of deceased not to sue either the airline or Boeing.

What can you say, business is business.

I was on the last Air Canada's Max 8 flight, before they got grounded. I didn't even know I was on one until I got my friends sms, after we landed...
Then, almost got stuck in California, because our return flight got canceled.

FAA plays tennis and works with airliners? GOAT.

Intresting point of view, but could be the track record into the mishaps.

People who tries to save lives risk losing their career while executives who puts passengers' lives in danger gets away without consequences.

Wow the second article is pretty telling. Corporate culture that prioritizes profits over everything else....
