Phuket Plane Crash Kills 88

You’ve probably seen by now that a One-Two-Go MD-82 (which you may know as a variant of the DC-9) crashed in Phuket, Thailand, over the weekend, killing 88 of the 130 people on board.  I only mention it here because I’ve seen a number of articles that question the safety record of low cost airlines in Southeast Asia.  This is a ridiculous statement.  Each of these airlines is different, and the questionable safety records of one airline have nothing to do with the safety of another.
