Flying home tonight on Asiana - very concerned

Far out, I am flying home tonight on Asiana.... Rather upset at the minute. Nothing much I can do I suppose.

Travel safe - there were probably a lot more people who died just going to the toilet today, so I'm sure you'll be fine!

If anything the safety routines will be even stricter today than usual. And as I am sure you know flying is much safer than driving.

I understand your concern regarding the tragedy that happened yesterday. But you can be sure that every employee at Asiana will check everything on the plane with utmost care and attention today. Maybe this thought helps you: How high is the probability that one airline, which has the reputation of being very safe, will suffer two accidents in two consecutive days? More or less zero. I wish you a safe flight home!

It is never safer to fly than the day after an accident. Everyone is on their toes.

I don't think there have ever been two plane crashes in a row by the same airline. And today is probably not the day that it will finally happen since Asiana is a completely reputable airline.

Understandable your nerves are rattled. We flew back home to SFO (possibly using the same runway) just the day before the accident but on a different carrier. I am sure you'll be glad when you're safely home.
