Indonesia’s DGCA must act after latest Merpati crash

Merpati 737-300.jpgYesterday’s Merpati crash puts the spotlight on Indonesia’s airline safety and maintenance standards once again.

What is worrying is that despite several accidents over the last year, and nothing seems to have been done to force Merpati to conduct an overview of its safety and maintenance standards.

Indonesia’s DGCA needs to come down hard on airlines like Merpati, or it will simply bring down the good work that some of the other carriers in the country have done over the last year to improve standards, and finally gain access again to markets like the European Union.

    I had filght By merpati from DILI to BALI, and that was a scary flight,Scary price And a scary air plane.

    most people dont realise that merpati should be out of the air for years…

    Scary price…how many of you want to Pay 348USD for 1and a half hour fligth with a old airplane???

    Most people dont know, but last week Merpati has 2 incidents in the same traject…

    In an ideal world, yes. But not every airline thinks that way mate.

    Icariin works by increasing levels of nitric oxide (NO) in the body, which relaxes smooth muscle, and ultimately increases blood flow
    to the penis. Anytime you see a sexy, young lab assistant holding
    a test tube and saying something is clinically proven, you know
    there is a pole-cat in the hen house. Most natural erection pills, have a main ingredient called L-Arginine.
