I have booked flights for our family to travel Australia - Europe return with EK. My nine year old son is an aviation geek and since learning some details of the EK B777 crash in DXB (and also the OZ 214 crash) he has become very concerned about flying B777. I took that into account when booking flights and booked A380s all the way through (booked with QF due to airpoints but EK flights) but since booking the DXB - PER flight is now showing as a B777-300ER. He is in tears and refusing to fly on it. He is prone to some anxiety and is adamant that he won't be getting on the B777.
Is there anyone that can alleviate his fears? I have read and read articles out to him (which is how I ended up here) but he won't hear any of it.
My only hope is if someone with actual knowledge can provide some safety information that will convince him that it the B777 is a safe aircraft.
Many thanks in advance.
