Still developing/breaking news. 155-164 onboard, conflicting reports. From Surabaya to Singapore...

Wonder if that top notch Asian CRM will turn out to be a factor.

I'm sure CNN will make sure that does not happen.

Hopefully everything turns out okay. So many sketchy details right now to even gather what the situation is.

They'll find it. The same crack team of Indonesian investigators are on the case.

If they don't, there will be a big push for continuous sat/ground position telemetry over non-radar or remote areas.

You have GOT to be $#@&^% kidding me!!! Finally, a shred of hope for pilots in the post 911 airline industry (profits, retirements, not having to buy a job anymore, etc.) and these damned Asian airlines are screwing it up for all of us!!! ICAO, if they can't get it done safely, competent western airlines will be happy to take up the slack by covering those routes!!!

My thoughts are with the families, and I hope it turns out to be a non-event.

They don't let us fly their fancy new fangled airplanes unless we have 500 on type, but if they crash the sim on their checkride, no sweat.
