Just because there was a plane crash doesn't mean you should be worried about flying yourself, and you certainly shouldn't reconsider or change your travel plans because of it. Plane crashes are so statistically infrequent that... wait, where did you just say you were flying? SE Asia? ...nevermind.

(Normally i'd think that immediately after a crash would be one of the safest times to fly. Unlike coin flips plane flights don't exist in a statistical vacuum, and you'd think that everyone involved in maintenance and operations would be a little more cautious than usual after a big disaster.)
