Aeroplanes should be banned as a means of transportation.

Aeroplanes should be banned as a means of transportation.
The rate at which airplanes fuel massive human destruction is alarming, therefore all airplane's should be grounded as a means a mitigating human imposed destructions. Aeroplane crashes are known to be extremely fatal, passengers have a very slim chance of survival, because they usually hit the ground or water body with enormous force. Flights are normally expensive when compared with other means of transportation, therefore the percentage of the population that flies regularly are few, and the majority still survive without flights.

Their are cheaper and yet efficient means of transportation aside flights, so government should invest more on these means of transportation, since they accommodate a higher percentage of the population and their accidents are less fatal, some means of transportation like speed trains, hardly get involved in accidents, unless they are intensionally attacked.

Aeroplane ban will help in reducing the disastrous nature of modern warfare, because their role in major bombings is very obvious. We can actually build a global village without flights, since ancient kingdoms were able to relate with each other without the vulnerable machine aeroplane.

A ridiculous suggestion

Okay, why don't we stop using cars and go back to using a horse and cart? This is the most ridiculous suggestion I have heard because there are fewer deaths with planes than there are with cars.

Quite simply it is an industry, it runs businesses. How do you think exports and mail from other countries will get there? I'm sure the OP has no concept of the livelihoods the industry creates (airport workers, airlines manufacturers, etc) and the fact that people are willing to take the risk. Just because the OP doesn't wish to use a plane, doesn't mean the rest of the world should stop. Sorry, but this is an archaic and small minded approach and the majority of people fly safely. I for one have traveled the world several times without any incident.

They are cost effective. They can get things properly done from one place to another. And even better they can prove to be an excellent method of the transportation. And that's something we have to consider for the transport. I am sure that you can see that such methods can be good for the saving money. So this should be good enough.

Disagree - a totally absurd idea !

As I’m still here after having spent the majority of my life hopping on and off planes - both for business and pleasure and at times almost as regularly as other forms of transport - banning planes/air transport is to me a totally absurd idea.

Particularly bearing in mind the fact that - as statistics continually show that it is actually the safest form of travel and the chances of meeting an untimely demise are way, way more likely - on the drive to or from the airport or by being hit by a bus than they would be traveling by plane - air travel is probably the safest part of any journey.

Apart from that - as air transport is an important factor in global economy and the lack of it wouldn’t just affect many industries but everyone’s daily lives too - I don’t think that anyone would - in reality - actually want to be without it - especially as many lives would be lost without necessary fire fighter or emergency air-lift planes or those that deliver drugs, transplant organs and food to name but a few.

We Could Never Ban Planes

Banning planes, I think, would instantly crash the entire economy of the known world. Tourism would die. People would be unable to get to their family members on time during emergencies. Protective military forces would fall apart. A new kind of isolationism would ensue, I think, that our current global economic infrastructure is NOT ready for! Plus, if you have the means, you should have the right to travel by plane to anywhere in the world that you would like to get to. I don't think planes will ever be banned. If anything, they will just become more safe and more advanced in their technology.

How would we expect economy to work without aviation? Also waht about warfare? As dangerous as it might be airplanes have changes our world to a better place and there is no going back
Posted by Marvadaum on 11-07-2017


Considering the fact that airplanes are the safest means of transportation in the world (even with all the accidents that have already happened), I see no real reason for them to be banned (not at least until something better is created).

Many more people die because of cars. Hundreds of them, every DAY. If you're saying this only because of terrorist attacks then don't you remember how many cars and trucks terrorists use? They are easier to obtain than planes. I see absolutely no reason for banning planes. They are a very safe mean of transportation.

Planes have many safety measures and they have improved a lot in the last decades. It's more common and probable to be involved in a car crash than in a plane crash. Also, planes are fast and aren't unreasonably expensive. Imagine you have to cross the Atlantic Ocean, you would need to use a ship if there weren't airplanes, and let me tell you, sometimes traveling by ship is way more expensive than traveling by plane. Planes are efficient in transporting people, goods and different things, they won't be banned anytime soon if ever.

I am surely disagree with it.

Aeroplanes are the fastest way if you want to travel so many miles away. It is convenient transportation if you want to go fast to your destination. It is true that accidents occur in aeroplanes but it also happens in other transportation vehicles. And I must say that aeroplanes should not be banned as a means of transportation.

more good than bad

Even if it is used in war, and even if there are accidents sometimes, the amount of convenience and progress provided by this technology is invaluable so it is worth it. To ban this would be like banning knives just because people get stabbed sometimes. It doesn't make sense to me but it's an amusing idea that someone can think this way.
Posted by Wubwub on 09-28-2018

I disagree

The fact that the accidents from plane crash are fatal doesn't mean a plane wouldn't take off in the next minute.

An aeroplane is a means of transport and it has proven to be of great importance to any economy both globally and locally. It has help bridge the gap of distance both in space and time. Aeroplanes are like the fastest means of transportation and we cannot do without in at this stage.

Safety measure can only be taken in the handling and management of aircrafts in order to safeguard lives and property not that it should be abolished.

Definitely Disagree

I do still find airplanes as the safest means of transportation than any other mode of transportation like ship, car, train, motorcycle or even a bicycle. You rarely saw an airplane crashes in the news while most of the time, you all see any mode of transportation in the news that has been involved in an accident every day. I think that even both the engine failed, the airplane can still glide through the air and slowly brings the plane down to the ground as long as the pilot knows what to do, there are still chances of survival.
Posted by ColdFlameChris on 11-03-2017

Strongly disagree

Aeroplanes should not be burned. How will people travel from one continent to another? What about emergency? For example when there is fire or someone is lost in a forest or island, an aeroplane will be very convenient in making a fast rescue. I have not used an aeroplane before but I would not want them to get banned.

Air Travel

Air travel by riding on an airplane is the fastest way in travelling the world or from country to country or to cross any ocean. It is the modern way to travel, it's very fast and convenient. Having no planes will plunge as back to the 18th century.
Posted by Kakashi2020 on 03-17-2018

Totally disagree

I am not agreeing about that. Airplanes are one of the most important vehicles that we have in order to travel fast and safe. I cant imagine without airplanes.
Posted by mark86 on 11-21-2018


Yeah this is NEVER going to happen. Travelers use planes every day. They are a very efficient means of getting people transported from one place to the next. The service at times can be questionable. From the employees on the plane, to the ticket people who at times can not find your reservation. Prices can be nuts also. But to just ban planes or air travel altogether is impossible. I do think though somewhere in the VERY DISTANT future, someone will discover a way to transport humans from one place to the next using high technology. Something similar to 'beaming' people long distances in a matter of seconds.
Posted by NickJ on 11-03-2017
It can be banned as a means of transportation only if there will be an alternative means of transport that will be more safer than aeroplane.
Posted by babyright on 11-03-2017
I agree that the airplane cannot be banned right now. Can you imagine those businessmen and government official who have to travel for weeks just to reach their foreign destination? It will be foolish to do away with the planes because it is the fastest means of transportation and it is the best transportation over the sea. Maybe if we can make land bridges to connect all the countries then we can settle for the train.
Posted by Corzhens on 07-06-2018
Airplanes are never going to be banned and statistics show that they are much safer than travel by car. How are people going to get over the ocean? I think aeroplanes can be made safer but they are among the safest forms of transport ever. Just look at the statistics. It is important to find the safest forms of transport and these are the forms that you need to consider.
Posted by kgord on 11-03-2017
More people are killed in road accidents than from plane crash. Do you also suggest to ban all kinds of vehicles? In our home country death from snake bites is very high, you you think we should kill all of the snakes? Flood and landslides are also major causes of deaths in our home country, how do we ban these natural disasters? banning planes just beause people die from plane crash is a foolish suggestion.
Posted by vinaya on 11-03-2017
An absurd poll! Why ban a safe and fast means of transport, able to take you to another country in a few hours? In fact the vast majority of air crashes are fatal, but this would never justify banning planes. See how many plane crashes in the world and compare that number with car accidents. Then you will have my opinion on this subject
Posted by hermessantos on 11-03-2017
When it comes to the transportation which is cost effective and timely manner. The air transport is the only option. You can't expect the ship to be the same. And that's where we have to consider for the managing of the transport. So you have to consider that planes have their own ways to deal. There are going to be few mishaps. And we have to understand what is possible. We can use robots in future.
Posted by overcast on 11-04-2017
I am against the idea of banning air transportation. It is true that many people have lost their lives due to plane crashes but we can't ignore the benefits of air transportation. I have been traveling to various countries and this has helped me in learning many things. We need to get out of our comfort zones at times and explore other places. Moreover, all countries are not self-sufficient. They rely on imports and if we stop supplying goods to those countries we can imagine what the plights of the citizens of those countries will be.
Posted by Pixie on 11-06-2017
Pardon me for this rebuttal but airplanes have been invented for faster travel. To be honest, I am also scared of flying even if I am a traveler – this year I had been to 5 countries and there are 2 more to go – they are all via airplanes. I cannot imagine taking the boat because it takes a lot of time to reach my destination country. It takes 3 hours from our place to reach Japan by plane and it will take 4 days if I take the boat. That’s a lot of time wasted.
Posted by Corzhens on 11-11-2017
I totally disagree with you. Everything in life as it good and bad sides and there's no two ways about this.Aeroplane is the fastest means of transportation and this alone outweigh any negative side of having an aeroplane. So it shouldn't be banned.
Posted by lovely on 11-14-2017
I don't agree because all mode of transportation is risky and fatal whether it is on ground or air. The benefit of using an airplane as a mode of transportation eases the travel time of the passengers. Time is very important and if the travel time is delayed, the economic growth of the country will be slower.
Posted by Scarlet on 12-06-2017
What? Is this serious? They only need is more safety features. Without the plane, how many days we need to waste just to go to other country? and I think using boat or ships is much more dangerous mode of transportation. plane is the most fastest and recommended mode of transportation, well that's my opinion.
Posted by ion on 02-20-2018
I do not see any reason why airplanes should be banned. Airplanes is one of the convenient and fastest means to transport not just people but goods as well. If ever there are cases that airplanes crash or encountered problems, it is not enough to ban it. What is needed is for their maintenance people to do their job well. Other reasons why it crashes cannot be avoided so there is no reason why airplanes should be banned to fly.
Posted by mdayrit on 09-28-2018
Airplanes are made to make the travel from long distance place faster and safer. I am not actually agreeing to ban them. There are some issues with the airplanes company before but not all airplanes company has a bad reputations at all.
