I flew out of CGK earlier this year and you are pretty much over the water within a couple of minutes.
VERY VERY SAD!!! We can all disagree about many things on this site, but we all share one thing in common and thats our absolute love of commercial aviation. The joy the wonder of it all.... We all get on these planes all over the world, some of us like cabs...and well its just sad.
Easyjet and Wizzair have 18 year old pilots and they are perfectly safe...
People who are trying to pin it on the manufacturer are naive to say the least. Look into Lion's safety record. Add in the fact that this is a new type, aka they have had little time to familiarize themselves with how it works maintenance-wise. And there was a problem the night before. This is a recipe for disaster.
