Check safety of low-cost airlines

After the crash of Germanwings Airbus A320, the liberal daily Savon Sanomat hopes for a full explanation of the cause: "The flying conditions at the site of the crash were apparently perfectly normal. ... Did the plane have a technical or a structural problem? Was it a terrorist attack? Why was it flying at an abnormally low altitude, and why did it deviate from its usual flight route? ... If there was a problem it must be brought to light, because similar problems could occur with other Airbus A320s. ... In addition, the safety practices of low-cost airlines must be scrutinised. If cheap flights become unsafe, many customers will presumably be willing to pay more if that means increasing their chances of arriving safely at their destination."
