Worlds Top 10 Safest Airlines

1. British Airways:

With no fatal accidents since 1976, and a staggering six million flights since then, British Airways is a clear winner in the safety stakes. Celebrating its 90th anniversary last year, British Airways is among the oldest airlines still in operation and one of the largest, flying to hundreds of destinations and carrying in excess of 30 to 40 million passengers every year. As safety records go, this is hard to beat.

 2. Air Canada

Founded in 1936, and flying to 178 destinations worldwide, Air Canada is one of the safest airlines in the world, having made 4.84 million flights since its last fatal accident back in 1983. Perhaps somewhat surprisingly, this is the most recent fatal accident to befall any of the airlines on our list, but by virtue of having made so many flights since then without incident, it remains an extremely safe choice for nervous passengers. It carries in excess of 35 million passengers each year, and makes around 1400 flights every day. Continue reading Worlds Top 10 Safest Airlines

Ten things Google has found to be true

1. Focus on the user and all else will follow.

From its inception, Google has focused on providing the best user experience possible. While many companies claim to put their customers first, few are able to resist the temptation to make small sacrifices to increase shareholder value. Google has steadfastly refused to make any change that does not offer a benefit to the users who come to the site:

  • The interface is clear and simple.
  • Pages load instantly.
  • Placement in search results is never sold to anyone.
  • Advertising on the site must offer relevant content and not be a distraction.

By always placing the interests of the user first, Google has built the most loyal audience on the web. And that growth has come not through TV ad campaigns, but through word of mouth from one satisfied user to another.

2. It’s best to do one thing really, really well.

Google does search. With one of the world’s largest research groups focused exclusively on solving search problems, we know what we do well, and how we could do it better. Through continued iteration on difficult problems, we’ve been able to solve complex issues and provide continuous improvements to a service already considered the best on the web at making finding information a fast and seamless experience for millions of users. Our dedication to improving search has also allowed us to apply what we’ve learned to new products, including Gmail, Google Desktop, and Google Maps. As we continue to build new products* while making search better, our hope is to bring the power of search to previously unexplored areas, and to help users access and use even more of the ever-expanding information in their lives.
