Now explain to the us how the airline safety record isn't going to get worse.....
Well, since that's not reality, why would we worry about that? You said people would stop flying if they knew what was currently
going on. Since in the current situation flying has been shown to be safer than driving, I just think you're wrong that most people would just all of a sudden give up flying to drive long distances. I guess some people might forgo trips they otherwise would have taken....
