    I'm wondering what everyone thinks and feels about all of the airlines that have taken equipment out of service. The latest airline is United, who took some 777s out of service, because they want to check some wiring.

    Does all of this re-inspection make you nervous? Does it make you feel safer? Does it not affect you one way or the other?

    Me, I'm not sure what I think. I fly to Disney next month, but the airline I am on (Continental) has not pulled any planes from service, that I am aware of.

    I'm of the mindset that they're REALLY looking at airline safety closely right now, as opposed to six months ago. Then again, six months ago would fall under the category of "ignorance is bliss". Who knows? :confused3

    When it's my time, it'll be my time.

    I voted 'no', although the response isn't how I would have worded it.

    Most travellers have no idea what goes on behind the scenes, and it is most likely best that way ;)

    I think I have a decent idea what goes on back there.... and I am not bothered either way.

    It's not unheard of, it's happened before and will happen again.

    The truth is that the airlines do a pretty good. They have to. It's kind of in thier best interest to keep those planes UP LOL!

    Yeah, I always tell myself that tha pilot wouldn't be flying a plane if he/she thought it wouldn't make it to the destination!
