EU: Airline Regulator

According to blogger Clive Irving, you should be paying more attention to the European Union when deciding which airline to fly in light of the recent spell of air accidents.

"The European Union has the toughest screening process of airlines in the world: More than 160 are on its current black list, meaning that they are not allowed to fly into or out of EU countries."

Notably absent from his post is any mention of the Air France disaster, the largest plane crash in 2009 in terms of fatalities. I'm reasonably certain that Air France is not blacklisted by the European Union.

This pilot says we should be paying more attention to everything when we're flying and (not surprisingly?) that we should be paying our pilots more.
