Nairobi bound 737 crashes 6 minutes after take off due to "unstable flight".

How terrible.

I agree with this tweet.

Eh, the plane was going from Ethiopia to Kenya. It is assumed Ethiopians and Kenyans are probably among the dead. It's quite a stretch to assume this is racism on behalf of the AP.

I've never understood identifying the victims' nationalities in the media when a plane crash occurs. If someone notable/famous is on board, sure, but why divy out what countries everyone is from? They're dead regardless of where they're from, no need to care more or less if they're from *your* country.

I'm interested to see if it's a coincidence or if this new version of the 737 has some sort of problem.

Several countries have grounded this particular model.

Does the AP maybe just list nationalities of countries where they're published?

It would be superfluous to announce that Ethiopians were among the dead in an air crash in Ethiopia. It would be more noteworthy if the headline was "No Ethiopians killed in Ethiopian air crash"

Not Canada though. I hope that’s not what I’m flying on on Sunday.

Am I the only person who insists on knowing what kind of plane they're flying on when booking flights?

It usually says what type of plane it is when you book or when you look at the seating chart, at least.

Nope. I find the kind of plane I’m flying on and a seating chart, at least. Ideally, I find the exact plane I’m flying on with photos. And all that info goes right into my travel spreadsheet because I’m fun like that.

Haha, I don't find photos of the exact plane, but I *always* know what sort of aircraft I'm hopping on.

I hate the CR series of regional jets and I avoid them when possible.

I know by memory which planes have entertainment screens in the headrest.

You think if a New York - London flight crashes, they will skip over the Americans and Brits?

Probably, if the news was being reported in an Ethiopian newspaper. You can be sure they would make a special mention of any people from an African nation on the flight.

Over here there are some companies that buy planes but cram smaller seats to fly more people. As a large and tall person, I like knowing so I can avoid those.
