Considering the 737 is the world's most popular airline it might be difficult to avoid.

I would not worry as the 737 MAX's are grounded and the older versions are as reliable as anything out there.

This last runway overrun was bad piloting, nothing to do with the aircraft.

Sounds like they went through a thunderstorm before or during landing... And they had a hard landing, it also was a military charter flight flown from Guantanamo Bay in Cuba and landing at a military installation.

Still by far the safest form of transport.

Here is my opinion. They where flying way too fast on the approach. Too much airspeed (170kts) and too high of a vertical speed, it was greater than 1000fpm at only 500AGL.

So they landed fast on a rain soaked runway with a tailwind. Probably landed long too being they must of been high (therefore the 1000fpm decent near the ground).

Flightaware does not lie.

Maybe all this was due to the weather but still the pilot's fault.

I read that the runway there isn’t grooved which may have been a contributing factor to water laying on the runway.

Do you realize that driving to the airport can be the most dangerous part of the trip?
