Is Air Travel Too Safe?

In Malaysia, there are seven; in Kenya, 87more than 60 times the rate in the U.S., compared with about a fivefold gap in air safety. Given how often people drive, and how indispensable car travel is in most countries, the gap in developing countries road safety records is far more troubling than their air safety records are impressive. Sadly, this is not new news. Twenty years ago, a team of U.S. public health officials put together a collection of 500 life-saving interventions and their estimated cost per year of life saved . They estimated smoke detectors in airplane lavatories cost $30,000 per life-year saved and emergency signs $54,400 per life-year. Since then, the regulations have gotten more expensive: All planes must now carry automated external defibrillators (if they want to land in the U.S., at least), at a cost of almost $100,000 per life-year saved.

Miscreants fire at travel agent's house

Needless to say, our family flew a lot. Now, I continue to travel as a travel writer and photographer on assignment and have been on several airlines, ranging from great to pooras both a professional and leisure passenger, the changes of late have come quickly and noticeably. Deciding to weigh out the story, I turned to friend and colleague Kimberly Lord Stewart, who was a flight attendant for Pan Am, as well as current flight attendant for United Airlines Heidi Hill-Greer. I was fortunate to play a part of the glory days of airline travel as a Pan Am flight attendant, relates Stewart, Regardless of whether passengers were in first class, business or economy, Pan Am put service first. In an era where flight attendants were issued white gloves versus the era of today where they are issued handcuffs, the industry has certainly changed. However, some of the inconvenient changes have been made for overall safety and health issues, as Hill-Greer relates: While it seems that getting rid of those small pillows and blankets onboard was a part of lowering service standards, it had more to do with sanitary issues. Those were done away with after H1N1 became and epidemic a few years back. Airplane food was the butt of many jokes for poor-quality economy class fare, while First Class enjoyed everything from steak to caviar.
