Prayers to Turkish Airlines’ Crash Victims
Five Turkish Airlines crew among the crash dead at Schiphol airport, by David Charter
Five crew members, including three pilots, were among the nine people killed when a Turkish Airways flight crashed on its descent into Amsterdam’s Schiphol airport.
The names of the dead are expected to be officially released today but reports emerged that the three pilots were Captain Hasan Tahsin Arisan, Murat Sezer and Olgay Ozgur.
The Boeing 737-800 aircraft, which was carrying 127 passengers and seven crew from Istanbul, crashed into a ploughed field at 10.30am local time yesterday, narrowly missing a highway. It broke into three pieces but, luckily, did not catch fire.
Oh Lord, bless those who has been killed during the crash. Bless their innocent death and may their soul rest in peace in your arms…. Amen.

Everytime I fly with an airline, I always wonder, how these people ever prepare the meals on board the aircraft. LIke, do they even have a kitchen in the aircraft? That will be cool wei, seeing air crews frying an egg on board. Wouldn’t it? hahaha

So, KLIA or LCCT Labu?
All I can say is that LCCT Labu is just a gimmick. As much as I have support for Air Asia as well as MAS, I do seriously think, spending on LCCT Labu is just not wise and no businessman would venture into that.
Why do I think so?
I don’t know. Maybe

ASEAN will see the implementation of open skies policy. In fact, we have already got the feeling of this policy of implementation already. The continues war pricing between airlines and the continues war for a piece of the route (eg. KUL-SIN) has given us, the consumers, the hands down win.
