  1. Yes, but only if it’s something that affects me or my family. Otherwise no, screw the others with needs, they are not my problem.

  2. Wow! It’s been 30 years since the Aloha Airlines Accident? I remember that, and being from Hawaii, we all knew someone or were related to someone on that flight. Still amazed that they were able to land it in such a condition. If memory serves me, a UAL 747 has their cargo door ripped off in flight shortly after

  3. I’m allergic to meat ,dairy ,fish and water please remove all of the, them from the plane or put me in a hepa filtered premium cabin with my economy ticket please

  4. I loved little aloha airlines. I got to fly it 4 times between a number of islands 3 years prior to this accident on family vacation as a kid in Hawaii. Aside from British Caledonian Airways and Texas Transtar, it was one of my favorite airlines as a kid. I remember this event and I was so sad that this happened to such a good little airline. The article in Gary’s link tells an amazing story.
