World’s Most Unsafe Airline Carriers the “No Fly Zone”

Worst Airlines

If traveling is in your future,  there are several important factors you might want to take in consideration  if you plane to fly.

AIRLINES from Nepal, Kazakhstan and Afghanistan bottomed out on a list of the world’s safest carriers.

AirAsia, which recently lost 162 passengers and crew in an Indonesia-to-Singapore journey, also rated poorly on safety ranking made by AirlineRaings.com. The online airline journal evaluated 449 airlines from across the globe.

The airlines were rated on a seven-star system that leaned on accreditation from various international flight bodies. If any airline used exclusively Russian-made equipment, it lost one star automatically.

The worst of the worst were Nepal’s Tara Air and Nepal Airlines, Kazakhstan’s Scat Airlines and Afghanistan’s Kam Air which all received just one star.

Amazingly, Malaysia Airlines — which had Flight 370 vanish without a trace in March with 239 people on board — had high safety scores with five stars.

AirAsia subsidiaries in Indonesia, Malaysia and the Philippines didn’t fare well, scoring just two, three and three stars respectively.

Malaysian Airflight Mystery No Recent Pings

Wednesday marks 33 days since the jetliner mysteriously disappeared from radar screens, a stretch marked by loads of speculation, lots of heartache from relatives of the 239 people aboard the plane and few solid facts about what happened.

flight recorder is an electronic recording device placed in an aircraft for the purpose of facilitating the investigation of aviation accidents and incidents. Commonly referred to as a black boxIt’s also three days since the date which the batteries powering the flight recorders‘ locator beacons were certified to be working. Stored in a plane’s tail, they are designed to begin sending off distinct, high-pitched signals as soon as they come in contact with water.

“Aura of urgency” prevails as authorities are still listening, mindful the pulses could last a few days longer and that sending in submersibles could ruin chances of hearing them again. Retired Lt. Col. Michael Kay of the Royal Air Force told CNN the batteries can operate up to 40 days.

Cheers over what searchers believed might be underwater pulses from Malaysia Flight 370 have given way, four days later, to little more proof the aircraft is close to being found.

No more signals have been detected since Saturday’s momentary jubilation aboard an Australian navy ship some 1,100 miles (1,750 kilometers) northwest of Perth — pulses consistent with those sent by a flight data recorder and cockpit voice recorder, explained Angus Houston, head of the Australian-led search effort. Nor has any wreckage been found from the Boeing 777-200ER.

United Airlines Loses Little Girl at Chicago Airport

It was a frightening experience for  10-year-old Phoebe Klebahn today when she found  was lost in America’s second-biggest airport today.

United Airlines Forgets Little GirlThe young girl was in route from San Francisco where she lives to Chicago.  Once she arrived at the airport there was suppose to be a flight attendant there to meet her and take her to the gate where she would board a connecting flight to  Grand Rapids, Michigan for summer camp.

When she arrived in Chicago’s, O’Hare International Airport there was no one at the gate to meet her. She attempted to ask other flight attendants to meet her they refused because they were “too busy.” 

‘She  asked three times to use a phone to call us her parents and was told to wait.  When she missed the flight she asked if someone had called camp to make sure they knew and they told her “yes—we will take care of it”.  No one did.”

‘She was sad and scared and no one helped.’

Phoebe’s parents, who paid a  $99.00 unaccompanied minor fee didn’t find out that their daughter had trouble with the airlines until  a camp counselor called to say that the girl never showed up.

Four hour latter, she was put on a plane to Michigan.  She finally arrived at camp…only to learn that her luggage was lost.

According to sources…The Klebahn’s, Phoebe’s parent spent countless hours on the phone with the airlines to find out how this happened…The eventually learned that the escorts that the UNITED AIRLINES  uses third party service to collect and drop off unaccompanied minors during solo flights. 

An airline representative contacted  the Klebahn’s directly and released a statement apologizing for their alleged actions. United also issued a statement to the Huffington Post saying…
“We reached out directly to the Klebahn’s to apologize and we are reviewing this matter. What the Klebahn’s describe is not the service we aim to deliver to our customers. We are redepositing the miles used to purchase the ticket back into Mr. Klebahn’s account in addition to refunding the unaccompanied minor charge. We certainly appreciate their business and would like the opportunity to provide them a better travel experience in the future.”
