Flying has become deadlier than it has been for years and it's hard to pin it solely on Boeing Co.'s infamous 737 Max.
Aircraft accidents occurred more frequently in almost every region worldwide in 2018 as the death toll climbed to a four-year high of 523, according to the International Air Transport Association. The fatal crashes of Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 and Aeroflot Flight 1492 ensure that this year will be another bad one.
So what happened to the safest form of travel? It's one of the biggest questions hanging over airline and aircraft executives as they congregate this weekend in Seoul at IATA's annual meeting for the industry's largest gathering since the two Boeing 737 Max disasters.
