Survivor recalls final moments of doomed flight

It is easy to fly from one part of the world to another without thinking much of it. But there are some astonishing feats of human engineering at work in an atmosphere with a lot of hazards. Some of those hazards are unpredictable even to the people who build and operate airplanes.

What happens if a family member is in a plane crash?

Many people are afraid of flying, despite the statistics that show it is a relatively safe way to travel great distances. But some fears can be founded when there are problems with one or more of the many systems that keep a jet functioning from takeoff to landing. The fear here is that something went wrong that could have been prevented.

Data reveals that airline accidents declined in 2019

The year 2018 was a particularly grim year for the aviation industry. It saw 62 accidents and had a total of 523 fatalities. New York residents will likely be happy to learn that data from January 1, 2019, through December 2, 2019, shows 2019 to be a much better year.

Former NTSB investigator blames pilots for LionAir crash

Committee to consider pilot hours following Boeing 737 crash

The tragic crash of Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 last March is known to almost everyone in New York and elsewhere by now. Months later, experts are no closer to learning the exact details surrounding the tragedy that claimed 157 lives. Nobody is sure whether the pilots could have made different decisions that may have prevented the plane from going down outside Addis Ababa. The only factor that is known for certain is that an automated flight system that has been blamed in other Boeing 737 mishaps contributed to the flight crew's inability to override automatic systems and make manual adjustments to the plane's trajectory.

As a New York resident with plans to fly internationally in the coming weeks or months, it may serve you well to find out exactly what type of aircraft you are set to fly on.

At Kreindler & Kreindler LLP, we recognize that numerous airlines and nations have banned the use of these planes in the wake of the most recent fatal flight, and we have helped many people who suffered injury or lost loved ones in plane wrecks pursue appropriate recourse.
