This report is based on Hull loss and lives lost in accidents!! It is not based on what measures airlines have in place. I dont see how an airline can pay or not pay to have their names on the safest and not so safest list. Such numbers cannot lie!!

As perceived safe as they are, this survey is nothing but a load of PR 3rd world adoration tosh! This is simply so way off reality, it doesn't warrant a moment's consideration.
Emirates and Etihad are infants. KLM is pretty much the word's oldest airline, flying not far short of a hundred years longer than the babies in question and considering the miles they have flown, their safety record is impeccable; not perfect but way up among the best such as Air Canada and Qantas etc., . Dare we mention a near perfect EL AL record?
This silly press release is aimed at the uninformed, largely unsophisticated mass who will now tout this absolute tosh as fact for years to come.
Hikmat hits the nail by asking to reveal the criteria and it is probably some PR agency getting paid - cashing in on the 'ask anyone from Dubai who seem to cult worship anything Emirates' who is the best and surprise surprise, it's Emirates! Yet credible critics know well they lack in several areas.

Absolutely, as an ex EY employee, I agree with you 100% because I do know exactly what's going on and the ins and outs and cats behind, so to speak!

We will accept this data, only if we know the base of the study.
Anybody has an idea??????

Maybe the safe airlines are the ones that paid ab for their ranking.
