I think it’s safe to say that we’re all thinking more about safety since seeing footage of the survivors of US Airways Flight 1549 standing in a row on the aircraft’s wing. I know that for the future, I will pay more attention to the flight attendants’ safety briefing instead of tuning out and instead tuning into my iPod and book.


The New York Times recently had a good story on “lessons learned” from the crash. Please take a minute to read them, whether you’re a seasoned world traveler or only fly once or twice a year. They really could make a difference on your next flight.
