How Safe is Safe?

July 5th, 2007

Honestly – can’t we find a way to make international flights “safer” without supplementing the ticket price with a 50% tax? Granted that this is a discounted fare from a discount, internet travel agency – but even were the fare higher, say $1,000 each, the tax would still amount to some 25%. Does it really cost that much to keep people safe on the airplanes? Does it really cost nearly as much to keep the planes safe, as it does to actually operate the planes?

In related news, it doesn’t look like I’ll be going to Europe this year.
