Russia most dangerous country to fly in

Jump to last reply

The Wall St. Journal ran an article this morning saying that Russia is the most dangerous country in which to board an airline, outpacing 3rd world countries with terrible safety records. Dangers included badly trained and drunken pilots and insufficient maintenance. I'm not sure everyone will be able to read this link if you are not a subscriber, but if you do enough googling, you can probably find other free places where the articles is quoted (like flytertalk.com)
