Smudger, just for your education : all aircraft are fine normally (*) , it is the way you operate them that make them dangerous.
A good old 40 years old 707 operated by the US coast Guard will far, far safer than a 10 years old 737 operated by a RDC (ex-Zaire) airline.

Tu154 are very well buit and quite safe aircraft, take my word for it,
and Russian Pilots are better trained than most other countries .

Therfore I maintain that , seen what this airline and its pilots have done (before and after the incident), I'd fly with them anytime.

(*) from memory only 2 bad aircraft design, the Mu2 ( wing/ailerons ) and the very early 747s (rear bulkheads ).
Also Tu154 wont flip on their back if you land them on one main landing gear ( re MD11s)

Eh? The only 747 aft bulkhead problem I know of was a botched repair by a Boeing Team - Japan. Can't think of any others.

PS. With you 100% on the Tu154s. Grand machine.
