Headed To Colombia Any Time Soon?

If so, might we suggest you tell whoever makes your travel arrangements to book you a flight on Colombia’s Aires airline, whose planes are protected by some sort of force field that allows them to struck by lightening, break into three pieces and only have one person (out of 131) die (and not as a direct result of the crash)?

    Not to mention the statistical odds of CA jet going down again is now like one in a million

    Probably still worth the risk when traveling to Colombias given that your other option is riding a burro with one of those nasty blankets and an industrial sized can of deet.

    surviving crash landings on low-budget third-world airlines is the new killing it.

    I heard Cornell graduates are to blame for this and were seen at Minetta’s last night killing it while discussing Soviet Russia.

    @1 good point. I can’t remember, is EP type rated for the 737?

    @5 I heard you need to stop trying to make the Cornell “jokes” happen. They’ve made up the entirety of your comments today and last Friday. They’re not happening.

    I like Cornell. I thought the campus was really nice when I visited, but I am glad I decided to go to UVA though.

    Why does anyone care about Cornell (good or bad)? What’s the deal 5? Pissed that Andy Bernard would not include you in his acapella group?

    Any word on what the flight’s data-recording parrot had to say?

    The circular logo of “A”s on the tail come from the pilots’ comments during simulator training of a downburst and simultaneous lightnig strike: “A, A!! A…AAA!!! A…AA!!! ……..

    In Soviet Russia everyone dies in plane crashes.

    Hat tip to @10

    @15 The flight’s data-recording parrot was served for lunch in the first class cabin 30 minutes before the crash.

    There was no lightning strike. Wilson G was just delivering a ton of stuff to the islands when he was told to ditch the cargo, pronto, as the money paid turned out to be dollars, rather than yuan as promised. This was the best he could come up with given only 15 minuted to landing…
