I was supposed to fly a business partner on that flight, but we changed it to NY last week. (Thank g-d, not a lot of people were hurt!)

Did anyone else see the email from the former former United pilot (http://boardingarea.com/pointmetotheplane/2013/07/10/can-cultural-issues-cause-plane-crashes-another-united-pilot-email-re-asiana/) about Korean pilot training? Anyone a bit edgy about flying a Korean airline in the future?

Was the focus once in an unexplainable accident with a Korean Air Cargo in STN in the late 90s. They were banned from the US & Europe.

In general are there any airlines or airplanes you avoid due to safety concerns?

new video released by NTSB showed the cartwheel - LINK (http://abcnews.go.com/US/video/asiana-airlines-crash-caught-airport-cameras-21181899)

Its amazing that there were not more deaths in this crash.
