It mostly depends on the airline management and the airport accident statistics. If well maintained, aviation companies thrive on their reputation. There doesn't exist a particular formula that can give you plane crushes statistics.

Is flying during a snow shower dangerous? I am going back to Los Angeles from Denver on Wednesday, but there is a snow shower.?


As long as the plane is equipped for icing, which all airlines are, there is not really any added danger to flying in snow. Braking on landing may be affected if there's any accumulation but they keep close track on braking ability as each plane lands at the airport. Snow won't affect the way the plane flies as long as the wings are clear of snow on takeoff.

Scared of plane crash?


The safest time to fly is after such an incident because all pilots are double checking themselves to make sure it doesn't happen to them.

Why no whole-plane parachute system on commercial flights?


Aircraft too heavy. Weight is extremely valuable/expensive and the weight of a parachute system would be too heavy and costly, sacrificing room for paying passengers.

Is there any advantage to passenger jets carrying fuel in sealed tanks in their wings?


As the wings are lifted by differences in air pressure and gravity acts on the fuselage, the extra fuel load in the wings won't really affect the curvature. Rather, this is for the large storage capacity (volume) of the wings, and the safer option that your fuel tanks are outboard, rather than crew / passengers sitting directly on top of a "belly" tank. In event of a fuel-fire or crash, there is still a chance of fire being extinguished, or fuel-laden wings breaking away in a major crash. The spread-out mass of the wings also adds to stability by increasing the inertia.
