Commercial airliners fly very high very fast and very efficiently Given their extreme height and speed many people are fearful of flying There is a common myth in North America that commercial airliners are dangerous but this is far from the truth The public view aircraft as extreme as something they have no control over This is different from the way the public regards for example automobiles It is human nature for people to want to have full control They feel safer because they are actually controlling the car Also the fact that airplanes fly at extreme heights makes it difficult for the public to understand how safe they can be The fact is that you are more likely to die or get injured just driving to the airport compared with flying on an airplane As John Marder said The chances of you dying up there on that airplane are so low you had a better chance of dying in your fancy BMW on the way over here Crichton 223 The media can generate unnecessary concern by reporting only the accidents and not reporting the outstanding safety record airliners usually have No matter how good the aircraft is even if it has been working flawlessly for fifty years the media can report one bad incident and the public will fear flying in this aircraft forever Because of this the aircraft manufacturer will have to stop making a perfectly good aircraft As Casey Singleton said in Airframe That was the first time bad media has destroyed a good aircraft Chricton 111 Airplane manufacturers struggle with this problem everyday If airline companies like Northwest or Delta install parts incorrectly because for example they do not follow manufacturers instructions or buy parts from counterfeit manufacturers to save a few dollars this makes airplanes unreliable and a potential danger to passengers This is not the fault of the aircraft manufacturer yet if something were to go wrong
