I seem to remember a story about a United executive boasting about his
airline's safety performance at a dinner, only to find the next day that
one of his had crashed. This would have been the late 50s. The memory is
vague. But legend had it that this incident led to the practice of airlines
never attempting to compete with each other on safety claims. Does anybody
remember the correct details, or is it in fact urban myth?
