    Something is terribly wrong with aeroplanes crashing down everyday. We as passengers ought to think thrice ,when we are making the decision of which airline to use. The aerial dynamics have changed,so should the engineering. May their souls rest in peace.

  2. Kamaal Ahmed says:

    Looks like this is going beyond limits. this has now become a regular feature. looks like rules, regulations, strict policies about the status of the plane and the pilots is going down hill. is there any control on guidelines which airlines need to follow. ?????
