Do people really fly on either of these airlines? I heard that they crash a lot and that if they don't crash the plane will probably be shot down anyway.

Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

the whole family(6 ppl). you can check up the planes on seatguru or similar. if your question is if the plane is falling apart- its not at all.

i had a mixed experience with UN -
tlv-vko- was decent plane- no frills.
vko-jfk- was horrendously old 777- 2 of the4 seat cushions actually fell off when we first sat down. I have never been afraid to fly before, but the way the wings of the plane where sagging......

The return was a different story

jfk-vko- decent plane, no frills but no complaints 777
vko- tlv- brand new gorgeous plane a320, was the newest plane i have ever been on. Mood lighting, cool decor, well maintained and  a really nice experience.
