Pilot Dies Midflight From Europe, Plane Lands Safely

According to CNN, "Continental Flight 61, whose pilot died midflight, has landed safely at Newark's airport, the Federal Aviation Administration said. The agency said the plane landed at 11:49 a.m. ET. Continental said the 61-year-old pilot died "apparently of natural causes" while flying from Brussels, Belgium, to Newark. The airline said a relief pilot onboard landed the plane."

Is it too soon to ask whether it's prudent to fly trans-continentally on an airline called "Continental"?
