This week's Economist has an interesting article on airline safety.
There is a graph which compares "crashes per million departures" by
type. You can see it at:

Interesting that the 737, which seems to attract so much concern in
these newsgroups, is rated as the best, or third best, depending on
the model.

This week's itinerary:
SIN-NRT (SQ 747)
NRT-BNE (NH 747)
SYD-SIN (SQ 747)

I think this is the first all Boeing week I've had for 6 months!

Cheers,
Craig
