Today's sign of a rosy future

Clearly, reports of the increasing crappiness of world airlines have been overblown (see all Indonesian airlines, all US airlines...etc.). From Nepal, comes this gem. And I am all for religious freedom, being a hybrid abrahaimic-atheist-agnostic-animist myself, but this seems to lead me to ask MORE questions about the company, not instill deep confidence:
Officials at Nepal's state-run airline have sacrificed two goats to appease Akash Bhairab, the Hindu sky god, following technical problems with one of its Boeing 757 aircraft, the carrier said Tuesday.
What if Alitalia had a technical problem and then they trucked the pope around to all the planes in the hanger and had him bless each one? That would be funny.
