I've flown all over the world in all kinds of jetliners, and usually when the plane gets going, I tune out the safety presentation.
Been there, done that.
But on a recent Southwest Airlines flight from Money Map Press headquarters in Baltimore to Oakland International Airport, I listened carefully as the flight attendant described the plane's safety features.
And when I looked around, I noticed a lot more passengers than usual doing the exact same thing.
Just two days before, a woman died on a Dallas-bound Southwest flight after an engine failed and she was nearly sucked out of the cabin.
At a time like this, many investors might shy away from The Boeing Co. (NYSE: BA), which made the ill-fated 737 aircraft in question.
