    if you are tryng to rank concerns by aircraft type I'd be most leery of Airbus products. Especially older ones. Again, odds are strongly in favor for a safe flight but keep an eye on the reports coming out of the A320 incident in New Orleans today. The MSM media is getting it all wrong, as usual. They are making a big fuss about 737 metal fatigue but the bigger problem is electrical problems among new generation airplanes. (remember the 787 electrical fire a few months ago?) there is a trend there that is very disconcerting.

    United Flight 497 Shudders, Smoke Fills Cockpit – All Electronics Gone: United Makes New Orleans Emergency Landing

    April 4, 2011
    By Maggie 3 comments
    A United Air Lines flight left New Orleans with 115 people aboard and immediately turned back to the airport. Within minutes the cockpit reported smoke and the passengers said the craft was shuddering. The landing was rocky. The cockpit had no electronics, and landed using a backup system. The flight left the runway on touchdown, stopping some 2,000 feet beyond the pavement with a blown tire. Everyone made it safely off the Airbus A-320.
