I don't know but maybe it is just me but even though price is attractive and I could live with MS in F or even C (hey I'm clocking 200K mls in Y this year) for a leisure trip back to Europe there is this nagging concern about safety.

Honestly, I have no idea about MS's safety record (only remember this one plane coming from the US that went down) and every major airline has had problems, but I mean just from the point of thorough work of technicans and adherence to strict safety regulations, proper spare parts, maintenance cycles etc. I can't shake of concerns. Maybe I'm paranoid but it sticks.

Anyway, certainly attractive earnings rates. Get's you a decent free trip in C or F C+M and nice for a status run. My mom & my GF would freak out though and my employer won't book MS as it is not approved by our global office. Oh well.
