"Blacklisted" in Europe by alphabetical order
(last modified : 07/07/2010):
Wow, that is quite a list. Perhaps the recommended list would be easier to publish! ;-)
I fly Philippine and Cebu Pacific all the time with no concerns..
I know it is coming. I will just wait.
It would probably be easier to shorten the list by just saying that any airline flying old Soviet-made jets is blacklisted.
I flew Ariana Afghan Airlines into Kabul a few years ago. Instead of loading passengers onto the plane from front to back or by zones, the particular gate agent that day had a really weirdo boarding policy: ladies first.
I liked flying Air Koryo, although those North Koreans were touchy about people taking pictures or video inside the plane.
I miss Haiti Transair. If they were still around, I’m sure they’d be on this list.
Yes , but YOU are not a Euroweenie. I wonder how this list was actually made up? It is supposed to be incident based.But tripping on one's untied shoe laces shouldn't be an incident,is my guess. Or maybe the food served onboard has too much MSG? I was hoping we would have the privilege of having someone talk to us about flying on one of these airlines. I suspect that many are quite safe.
BTW I felt a lot less secure on Kuwait Air but its not on the list, it delivers alot of Philippine workers to the Middle East and Europe
What is the significance of 16 December, 2009 ???
The Philippines airlines are blacklisted because the airports have outdated radar equipment and they haven’t upgrade to international standards. The blacklist has to do with their version of the FAA. There are politicians there who don’t want to make a significant our chase like that unless they get a kickback.
Good Question, I am sure its a Euroweenie administrative date of somme significance, as in “ We need to protect ourselves.....LOL!”
The socialsist states of the european Union decided it needed to do something, but your question has some significance. Maybe one of the factors was that these local air lines were giving Air France too much competition?Some are not safe either.But socialist states never let a good crisis go to waste.
One could go to the EUs links at the lists home site and find out by going through the archives, but I simply don’t feel like it right now, midnight here , hitting the sack soon!
I've gone in and out of Manila many times during typhoon's with the runway lights knocked out and the terminal dark so I'm not at all convinced it has anything to do with safety...
