Travel / Re: So There Are Nigerians That Fly From Lagos To London Then To Abuja Than Direct? by ColeworldMD: 1:22am
coldsummer:
Yes I know a woman in lekki phase one who will never fly any local flight. She made that Lagos, London, Abuja, London Lagos a few times that I know of.

She says safety because her niece was on board the ill-fated Dana.


She should just gimme the case, I will back her and trek to Abuja from Lagos.

It's mostly due to phobia or psychological trauma. It's not always due to bragging. If you're a arsenal fan you will know the story of Denis Bergkamp "the non flying dutchman" he never flies cuz all his family members died in plane crash. If train is not goin there forget the journey. Hence he rarely played our away matches. In the end all protection is from God Almighty!

Same here.. Have a phobia for flying not to talk about refurbished planes used by local airline operators.. Not forgetting also our poor maintenance culture as Nigerians. Once it's still moving or flying, it isn't due for maintenance.

I'm at ease driving 12 hours by road from Calabar to Lagos than flying..

I will rather drive from any point to another point within Nigeria that fly our local airlines, even if l was given a free ticket!
The last one l "bravely" entered was Sosolisso Airlines and the "stress" it injected into my system will take twenty years to finally flush out and l swore that will be it.


Moreso, if you remember that the Dana Airlines plane was intact for over thirty minutes after it crashed-landed while we watch the passengers banging the body and pleading for HELP to come out of the plane .... before they all finally got roasted inside!

Please, those who still enter those "coffins" are tempting fate.... but me l no get that kind of level of fate!

It's just a case of ignorance.

As far as I know, the Nigerian aviation players are incompetent. HOWEVER, this does very little to warrant international routing, to avoid Nigerian airlines.

That's like me traveling to Mexico from Boston, then routing to Chicago.
The US has the highest occurrences of fatal plane crashes in the world. Followed by Russia and Canada.
By this logic, we should all avoid local flights, and route through other countries.

Considering Nigerians love to show off, I wouldn't be surprised if people who do it are more concerned about "bragging rights."

Pilots should start using parachute when they realized that the plane must fall like the Z00. May their souls rest in peace.

Travel / Reuters: Military Plane Crashes In Kaduna, Killing 7 by kaywizee(m): 3:38pm On Aug 29
A Nigerian Air Force plane crashed into a house in the northern city of Kaduna on Saturday, killing all seven people on board, a military spokesman said.

The air force said the Dornier-228 aircraft crashed into a house shortly after taking off from Kaduna Military Airfield around 06:45 (0145 ET). Nobody on the ground was hurt. "The plane was on a daily routine flight to Abuja when it crashed within the premises of the barracks, killing the four crew members and three civilian passengers," said military spokesman Colonel Abdul Usman.


An investigation has been launched to establish the cause of the crash.

Air travel is not the most sanitary experience: Super-tight seating arrangements force hordes of humans with all types of coughs, colds and questionable hygiene habits into one tiny space to share air, armrests and all the germs that come with travel. - See more at: http://www.naijaflo.com/2015/08/7-things-you-shouldnt-touch-on-plane.html
