Thai Die Fly

Now this Thailand plane crash is an awful tragedy and it’s very sad that many people have died, but surely it could have been avoided very simply.

I’m not scared of flying at all. It really doesn’t bother me in the slightest. However, there is no way that you would get me on a plane operated by a company called “One-Two-Go”.

Most airlines have reams of strict safety procedures and checks to go through before they take-off. And when you take off, you queue up and wait your turn with all the other planes. So flying with a company whose name implies that they just want to get you into the sky as quickly as possible would unnerve me to the point of wearing adult nappies.

They might as well have called themselves “Cross-your-fingers-and-hope-for-the-best Airlines”.

Frankly, from now on I will only be flying with “Five-Hundred-point-checklist-look-both-ways-several-times-we-don’t-fly-at-night-or-in-bad-weather Airlines”.

Now thats the sort of airline that would be oversubscribed. On a similar thought - I don't think even if I win the lottery I'll be buying my own helicopter !
