You are much more likely to die in a car crash, or a million other ways, than you are on a plane. Generally speaking, flying is one of the safest forms of transportation.

As we all know, however, nothing in this world is perfect, and accidents do happen.

Planes lose their hulls, they crash, and people lose their lives from time to time. It is also important to note that not all airlines are built equally. Some airlines are much more accident prone and therefore much deadlier than other airlines.

Here are the 10 deadliest airlines in the world as published in The Jet Airliner Crash Data Evaluation Center’s annual Airlines Safety Ranking.

10: SkyWest Airlines: 3 hull losses; 22 dead

9: South African Airways: 1 hull loss; 159 dead

8: Thai Airways International: 5 hull losses; 309 dead

7: Turkish Airlines: 6 hull losses, 188 dead

6: Saudia: 4 hull losses; 310 dead

5: Korean Air: 9 hull losses; 687 dead

4: GOL Transportes Aéreos: 1 hull loss; 154 dead

3: Air India: 3 hull losses; 329 dead

2: TAM Airlines: 6 hull losses; 336 dead

1: China Airlines: 8 hull losses; 755 dead

Finally! The Scientific Reason Why Scratching Makes You Itch More

The blissful relief of scratching an insect bite is almost worth the brief pain and doubly intense itchiness that follows.
