RE: Unlawful Interference On A Whole New Level At CGK

The ministry has said that it will investigate Lion Air for the delay, and that it is suspected that Lion Air overbooked the passengers and at 8am requested approval to change aircraft to the A330. No mention is made regarding the unlawful interference by the passenger. I guess they'll continue on t...

Past experience has shown that when it's a gang of people like this, no one gets prosecuted.
This madness has to stop and people starts getting prosecuted! It's out of control!

Unlawful Interference On A Whole New Level At CGK

Madness by Lion Air passengers has stepped up a notch this morning at <acronym title="Jakarta - International / Soekarno-Hatta (CGK / WIII), Indonesia">CGK</acronym>. JT898 was scheduled to fly at 0430LT, but by 0800LT had not boarded. (I suspect this is a tech delay further delayed by the need to o...

RE: Lion Air Pilot Offers FA As Delay Compensation

The case is continuing. The reporting passenger has now asked Lion Air to open "recordings" to prove whether what he reported was true or not, such as what was said by the crew, but funnily enough, he maintains his claim that he is telling the truth citing that "the airline keeps a record of phone n...

RE: Lion Air Pilot Offers FA As Delay Compensation

Sorry, stupid maybe, but this case was overblown. Passenger claims his flight was delayed by 3hrs. Checking FR24 on JT990 on 14Nov shows the flight was delayed by 2 hrs. Passenger was probably hoping for a 3 hr delay where he'd get a meal, and instead took the joke as a serious offer. Passenger also...
