In hindsight, the choice of this route over Ukraine appears to have been a foolish risk, one that cost nearly 300 lives and the loss of an aircraft, not to mention the damage done to Malaysia Airline's reputation and potentially the industry as a whole.

事后看来选择乌克兰上空这条航线似乎是一个愚蠢的风险牺牲了300生命又损失了飞机,更别提马来西亚航空公司的声誉,并可能整个行业造成损害。

While the lunacy of the flight tracks over Ukraine is still fresh in everyone's mind, it comes as no surprise that the FAA prohibited flights on Tuesday to Tel Aviv, a city and region embroiled in intense military conflict.

飞越乌克兰的航线之精神错乱在人们心中还记忆犹新因此美国联邦航空局(FAA禁止周二飞越特拉维夫(一个城市和地区卷入激烈军事冲突的航班毫不奇怪

But on Thursday, the FAA rescinded the ban. From my perspective as a pilot, I think the ban was a smart idea. But from the shareholders' point of view, a company with expensive assets sitting unused on the ground would probably seem wasteful.

但周四FAA即撤销了禁令。从我作为一个飞行员的观点来看,禁令是一个聪明的做法。但是从股东的角度发出,昂贵的资产闲置在那里不用可能太浪费了。

In a TV discussion with Rafi Ron, former director of security at Ben Gurion International Airport, I asked how Israel could guarantee the safety from random rockets of an airplane full of people arriving or departing Tel Aviv. He responded that Israel's current conflict was designed precisely to eliminate those Hamas launchers.

在与本古里安国际机场前安全部长拉菲罗恩的电视讨论中我问以色列如何能保证充满了启程或者到达特拉维夫旅客的机场躲避流弹,保障它的安全。回应说,以色列目前的冲突的目的就是精确射击以消除这些哈马斯发射器。

While I support Israel's right to defend itself during the conflict with Hamas, I wouldn't risk the lives of an airplane full of people just to learn for certain if the Israelis are right in their assessment of the potential risk. I have quite a bit to lose and it's not a risk I'd be willing to take, as a pilot or a passenger.

虽然我支持以色列在与哈马斯冲突中捍卫自己的权利,但不会拿一机场的生命冒险,只是为了学习比如以色列潜在风险的评估是否正确的技能。作为一个飞行员或乘客,我有很多可以失去,而那不是愿意接受的风险

The risk is very real and present when anyone is flying over a hostile territory. The spate of tragedies in the sky should prompt passengers to ask more questions about how and where their airlines operate before they hand over their credit cards for a ticket.

飞越敌国领土时,风险是非常真实且存在的。空中连续发生的悲剧应该促使人们在交出信用卡购买机票之前就询问好他们的航班如何以及在哪飞行。

悲剧在天空中接连发生应及时乘客询问有关如何以及在哪里他们的航空公司,他们的前手自己的信用卡一张的门票更多的问题
