(The New York Times) A plane carrying 189 people from Jakarta to another Indonesian city crashed into the sea on Monday, prompting a desperate search for survivors and questions about why the aircraft went down despite clear skies.


Lion Air Flight JT-610 had been flying north from the capital, Jakarta, to the city of Pangkal Pinang on the island of Bangka when it went missing. The crash is another setback for Indonesia’s fast-growing aviation sector, which has been troubled for years by safety problems.

Most likely this is due to human error.

I was in Jakarta and it struck me as a place with a lot of space for improvement.

The work ethic over there is very unlike that in China.

I would never fly in one of these local airlines in Southeast Asia, like Malaysia Airlines (is it still flying?) or Lion Airways.  Singapore Airlines is the only exception for its safety record, but not for its service -- very poor from a Chinese point of view.

That's understandable is it not?

Would anyone like to take a chance and end up in the bottom of the Indian Ocean?

Would you do it for ten million dollars?
