• I thought airplanes were safe?

    Best answer: Get a grip on reality. They are. There are over 23,000 large jets in service that conduct over 40 million flights every year (over 100,000 per day), carrying more than 4 billion passengers per year. A couple of engine failures does not constitute a statistical hazard to your air travel plans. You have a 1 in 5000... show more
    Best answer: Get a grip on reality. They are. There are over 23,000 large jets in service that conduct over 40 million flights every year (over 100,000 per day), carrying more than 4 billion passengers per year. A couple of engine failures does not constitute a statistical hazard to your air travel plans. You have a 1 in 5000 chance of dying in a car crash every time you get out on the road. In contrast you only have a 1 in 11 million chance of being in an airline accident where at least one fatality occurs. That's 3000 times greater chance yet I don't hear you squawking about highway safety when it should be near the top of your worry list.

  • Is it safe for two planes to take off at the same time at the same airport?

    I was wondering because I was flying out of Guangzhou airport in China and I saw another plane on another runway take off almost at the same time we did (he was headed away from us though)

    I'm going to be flying for the first time in a couple weeks and I don't know anyone that has flown before and I'm scared because I'm going to be alone. If anyone could break down how the whole process goes for me, that would be so helpful. I've looked up things and even watched videos, but my nerves are not calmed because they don't go into much detail about it. ALSO, It's not international, since I know those flights can go a bit different. Anything would be much appreciated! I'm so scared to miss my flight or do something wrong w checking in or security.

  • Newark airport connection times?

    Best answer: You shouldn't have to recheck your bags unless you have booked completely separate tickets for these flights. If they were on the same itinerary, with the same or partner airlines, then your bag will be automatically transferred for your flight.

    Best answer: You shouldn't have to recheck your bags unless you have booked completely separate tickets for these flights. If they were on the same itinerary, with the same or partner airlines, then your bag will be automatically transferred for your flight.

    That layover is shorter than I myself would like, but it will be enough time IF your first flight is on time. Your flight to London will probably start boarding 45-60 min before departure, so you really only have 30-45 min to get from one gate to the next (which also includes the time it takes your plane to get to the gate, and for you to get off your plane). They have a monorail between terminals, so you can move between them fairly fast. Don't stop at any shops or restaurants until you find your gate and make sure that you have some extra time.

    If you have a layover in Newark (or elsewhere in the US) on your return, then you will have to clear Immigration and Customs before boarding your final flight. Be sure to leave extra time for that - 90 min would likely not be suficient.

  • JetBlue vs. United vs. American?

    I live and work in coral gables, florida and my company just told me they’re going to ask me to fly up to northern New Jersey about once or twice a month for a meeting with another branch’s employees. I am getting a raise but the flights will technically be out of my own pocket. I am considering which airline would be the best option to become a member with and fly with most or all of the time. JetBlue only flies to Newark from Fort Lauderdale which is further from my house. United and American both fly from Miami but they’re both pretty bad Airlines, so what balances it out would be the loyalty programs. What should I do?

  • Is it cheaper to get round trip tickets rather than one way?

    I am going to the Philippines in the summer and I am having a really hard time deciding my return date.

    I am going to the Philippines in the summer and I am having a really hard time deciding my return date. It is either a month or two months, and there’s reasons why I am indecisive but I haven’t bought a ticket because I am scared that I will regret I am staying too long or too short and it’ll be too expensive to change the return flight. Should I just get the one way ticket to Philippines then buy a ticket to go back to US when I’ve decided? Also I know I could check online right now but I don’t know if price gets worse if I buy that ticket later.
