AirAsia: Comments from People Who Used The Airline is Shocking

Posted on

A social media commentator with the username ‘flyingjack’ had this to say about AirAsia:

“Ever since I flew Air Asia I’ve been sceptical about their maintenance standards. I flew with them twice (from Bangkok to Chaing Mai over and back in 2009) on board one of their Boeing 737 (300 series). The overall condition of the plane (inside as well as outside) was very neglected. I remember that one the trolleys hadn’t been secured properly and came racing through the cabin from the rear galley as we landed. Here’s a picture I took of the right wing with some missing rivets. A few of these missing rivets may not a treat for the plane to fly but it just doesn’t give passengers a good impression and tends to show that the airline’s priority seemed to be orientated towards profit rather than security.

Reports reaching Africa Thisday says that “Flight QZ8501 lost contact with the Indonesian Air Traffic Control at the waters of Babylon with GPS cordinates of 03 22 46 S 108 50 07 E.” It is therefore possible that the aircraft might have crashed into either the Java Sea or the Waters of Babylon. Recall that the MH370 was also rumored to have crashed into the sea.

An AirAsia flight travelling from the Indonesian city of Surabaya to Singapore has lost contact with air traffic control, the company has said.

Indonesian media say 162 people were on board.

“AirAsia Indonesia regrets to confirm that flight QZ8501 from Surabaya to Singapore has lost contact with air traffic control at 07:24hrs this morning.

At the present time we unfortunately have no further information regarding the status of the passengers and crew members on board, but we will keep all parties informed as more information becomes available.” The company stated.

The aircraft was an Airbus A320-200 with the registration number PK-AXC.

 

Already, “search and rescue operations are in progress”.

Recall that on 8th of March 2014, Malaysian flight MH370 went missing with 239 people on board and was never found. Then three months later, precisely on 17th July 2014, MH17, another Malaysian flight was shot down killing all 283 passengers.

The missing of the AirAsia flight is another wound in the heart of Asian aviation. Malaysia is about 895.15 Miles away from Indonesia. If you travel with an airplane (which has average speed of 560 miles) between Indonesia to Malaysia,
It takes 1.6 hours to arrive. The whole of Asia mourns again.

ImageMirror UK-The official police investigation into the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 has reportedly identified the plane’s captain as the prime suspect.

Malaysian cops discovered that married dad of three Shah, 53, appeared to have made NO social or work commitments for the future, unlike other members of his crew, the Sunday Times reports.

Their probe also found that he had programmed a flight simulator with drills practising a flight far out into the southern Indian Ocean and landing on a island with a short runway, the paper claims.

The drills were said to have been deleted but later recovered by computer experts.

Flight MH370 disappeared on March 8 while en route from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to Beijing, China.

There were 239 passengers and crew members on board.

To date, no trace of the Boeing 777 has been found.
