    Planes not been used and are now. Pilots not been flying and are now. Not unexpected. Kinda worrying though (given how many flights I have booked in the next few weeks!)

    No question. But if you had the option, I'd highly recommend picking other airlines.

    My opinion is based on analysis over 6 years ago. So I cannot comment on their current risk rating. But I can't imagine them improving significantly since then.

    AirAsia used to be one of our partners. They had poor ratings as well. Around the same time I was working with them they just had a plane go down.

    Not so my experience with Cathay over the years. Scheduled planes reliably appeared.

    Reminds me of a story a B747 freighter pilot once told me.
    The scary thing isn’t waking up and realising you were asleep.
    What’s scary is waking up, looking around the flight deck, and realising everyone else is asleep.
