Why you shouldn’t ride China Airlines

August 20th, 2007 · 1 Comment

Now normally, I like being nationalistic, pro-Taiwan and everything of the sort.  But China Airlines (you could call it the Taiwanese national carrier despite the name China) is a airline that is like ‘persona non-grata’ in my family.  Trips to Taiwan are only allowed on US carriers…namely Northwest Airlines (but United is OK too).  The reason?  Safety.  The US airlines have much better airline safety records than China Airlines.  By my rule of thumb, China Airlines, has a major disaster every 2 or 3 years.  Looks like they’re keeping true to the trend with this disaster in the last 24 hours.  Thank god everyone survived this one.

China Airlines has a troubled safety record. One of its 747s crashed in 2002 as it flew from Taipei to Hong Kong, leading to 225 deaths. Accidents involving the airline killed about 450 people in the 1990s.
