Countries, airlines grounding Boeing 737 Max 8 after fatal crash

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. Within the last six months, two fatal plane crashes claimed the lives of nearly 350 people, and both crashes involved Boeing 737 Max 8 planes, which first came onto the market in 2017. 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.

Confidence bringing suit against international aviation companies

There are many things that you may want to consider before taking legal action against a large aviation company. For example, you may not even be able to try your case in New York. Is your claim a high enough priority for you? Do you want to enter the legal process? If so, Kreindler & Kreindler LLP may be able to support you.

Defects, safety lapses to blame for fatal Pakistan plane crash

Residents of New York, the nation and the world are becoming increasingly concerned about the risks of international plane travel now that an investigation into a fatal crash revealed that defects and safety lapses played a role in the wreck. At Kreindler & Kreindler LLP, we recognize that safety lapses and manufacturing defects are common causes of domestic and international plane crashes, and we have helped many people who suffered injury or lost loved ones in such incidents pursue appropriate recourse.

International airlines cracking down on alcohol-abusing pilots

International travelers and safety analysts across New York and the nation are becoming increasingly concerned about alcohol abuse among pilots in the wake of a recent incident involving a pilot on a popular Japanese airline. At Kreindler & Kreindler LLP, we recognize that substance-abusing pilots endanger everyone on board their aircraft, and we have helped many clients who suffered injury because of a pilot's negligence pursue appropriate recourse.

Latest international crash reveals problem with Boeing planes

Travelers planning commercial flights to or from New York or anywhere else in the country should check to see if the plane they will be flying on is a Boeing 737 Max 8. If so, they may wish to take a different flight.

Lack of training may be to blame for aircraft accident

When people board a commercial flight, they assume the pilots flying the aircraft fully understand how to operate all of the controls. Safety devices designed to minimize the risk of aircraft failure are continually being updated. What happens, however, when pilots are not properly educated on how these safety devices work and what to do in a case where they malfunction?

Plane crashes in Mexico after severe-weather takeoff

When residents of New York board planes bound for national or international destinations, they typically rely on the plane's pilot and crew to determine whether conditions are appropriate for flying. When pilots second-guess their decisions to fly once the aircraft has already taken off, however, getting back on the ground is not always so easy, and the passengers and crew aboard a recent flight leaving Durango, Mexico, learned this the hard way.

Is that international charter flight safe?

Whether you book your international charter flight through a cruise line, tour operator or a company in a foreign country, you may not want to take the airline's safety for granted. According to The New York Times, not every country provides the same aviation oversight that the United States does.

How safe are helicopter tours?

If you are planning a dream vacation to New York City, the Grand Canyon, Hawaii or any of the other stunning destinations the USA has to offer, then helicopter tours might be a good choice for you. Helicopters are safer than you might expect, and they offer a unique set of opportunities for exploration. However, this mode of travel is not without risk, especially if you are visiting from abroad. 

Are international flights as safe as domestic ones?

When you need to fly internationally, you may wonder if you will be safe. It isn't uncommon for New York residents to question the safety of air travel and to be a little concerned when taking a foreign flight. In fact, USA Today reports that with many new stories on foreign flights crashing, being skeptical is reasonable.
