We're flying to Atlanta on Saturday. It's our annual pilgrimage to help Marc's mother celebrate her birthday. With our trip approaching, I just read this article, Airlines go two years with no fatalities.
It's comforting that air travel is so safe. I've always believed that it's a very safe way to travel, and this reinforces that view. Still, I see a headline like that and the smartass me can't help but think, "so they're due!"
I know it doesn't really work that way. The odds remain very much in the favor of anyone who is flying. That air travel has become this safe is excellent news.
