Here's what you said. In fact, until planes start falling out of the sky, most people really wouldn't stop flying, because no matter what the maintenance situation is, flying is still many times safer than driving.
Unless you think people are irrational morons (probably true in many cases), people would keep flying until it's no longer much, much safer than driving.
