I was off the grid for a few days, and, given my beat, that turned out to be a bad thing. But when I returned to civilization, I was impressed by the breadth and depth of much of the coverage of Asiana Flight 214. Some of it, of course, has been uninformed. But most of it – especially from the knowledgable bloggers and reporter who regularly cover the industry, has been pretty good.
I wanted to highlight some particularly strong stories here on the blog.

Asiana Flight 214 attendants lauded as ‘heroes’ via USA Today. As someone who recently flew Asiana, I should say I am not surprised by this. The flight attendants I met on my travels were unusually professional and appeared to be extremely well trained.
