Is It Scary To Fly Now

At the place I worked at, today I talked to a lady who is flying out of Las Vegas today and she is scared.
In the past few days, there have 3 major commercial airplane crashes in Ukraine, Taiwan and Mail.
One was shot out of the air and the other two crashes may have been caused by poor weather.
Last year in San Francisco, a Chinese airline crashed and burned, killing 3 people.  Before that, the last time a commercial airline crashed in the U.S. with a significant death toll was in February, 2009 in Buffalo, NY.  In 2013 there some crashes, but not with major airlines.
Then there was the Malaysian airplane that disappeared.
And in the past 2 weeks, 3 major crashes, killing hundreds of people.
Is it getting scary to fly? statistics say no, especially if you are flying out with a major airline from an major country.
But you really have to wonder.
