Dear Russian Airlines,

You seem to be maintaining a stellar record that began over ten years ago. I remember joking during my senior year in high school Russian class that if we weren't good our teacher would make us fly Aeroflot on our upcoming trip. Now that the Russian economy's doing a bit better, here's my suggestion: start hiring pilots away from airlines with better crash records and worse salaries. Or start breathalyzing them before take-off*.


*Drunken hijinks were the cause of two high-profile Aeroflot crashes during my high school years. No clue about more recent incidents.
