Quoting flythere (Reply 1): Indian gov really need to work on the safety standards of all Indian airports. Actions must be taken in due course.
While the Indian government may be blamed for a lot of things, please elaborate how this is the fault of the Indian government? Do we know any policy that is caused this accident, and that is different from generally accepted principles?

Quoting worldliner (Reply 13): 97 people on a 343? Damn that's empty, are the loads often that bad?

Its the end of a holiday week in Turkey (and much the Muslim world). People that went on vacation are returning home, and business activity does not pick up again until next week. So there would be hardly any demand to go to India on Friday.

Think 9-27 is open for business now, I hope there any more damage to the plane unlike the other write-offs that skidded off that runway - the S2 737-300 and the IT ATR72 come to mind. They should really put a 'Slippery when wet' sign on the runway.

There is no connection with the Incident to the safety standards at Indian Airports.......You must be joking.....This was caused by wet runway/taxiway & the pilot taking the earlier Rapid exit path at high speeds leading to the skid.The crew should have slowed down and taken the further down exit.

Was it the wisest decision to deploy the slide? From the photos, it appears as though it wouldn't have been hard to get air stairs to at least one of the doors? And besides, aren't there usually a few injuries when you evacuate by slide?
