Many go under the assumption that in poorer countries, their pilots may not be trained to the same standards. One was Ethiopian and the other Indonesian.

He's saying he would be more worried if it was American and United, meaning two different carriers, both with highly-trained American pilots. There's a chance that Ethiopia does have the same level of training.

He's not saying he doesn't care about dead Ethiopians, or their lives are any less important.
