On 27-1-2015 the Indonesian military called off efforts to recover the wreckage of an AirAsia plane that crashed into the Java Sea last month, after failing to find any more bodies inside the fuselage.
On 28-12-2014 (Sunday) AirAsia’s flight QZ8501, which was not authorised to fly on Sunday, crashed into the Java sea killing a total of 162 innocent passengers. The unauthorized AirAsia’s flight QZ 8501 was supposed to fly from Surabaya to Singapore. Naturally Tony Fernandez had not only denied that AirAsia’s flight QZ 8501 was unauthorized but proudly announced that AirAsia had the right to fly seven day a week from Surabaya to Singapore, HERE.
Within a week or so, AirAsia’s director, Sunu Widyatnoko, admitted during the hearing before Commission V of the Indonesian House of Representatives that AirAsia did not have the necessary approval for the Sunday flight as it only made a “verbal application” for the change of schedule. He had also admitted that it was due AirAsia’s “ADMINISTRATIVE NEGLIGENCE”. Please read HERE.
The search and rescue teams failed repeatedly in recent days to lift the main body of the Airbus A320-200, where officials had hoped to find the majority of the victims.
The navy, which has provided much of the personnel and equipment for the rescue effort, said Tuesday it was withdrawing as the badly damaged fuselage was too difficult to lift and no more bodies had been located.
“All of our forces are being pulled out,” said Rear Admiral Widodo, a navy official overseeing the search and rescue operation. “We apologise to the families of the victims.”
So far just 70 bodies have been recovered, and the national search and rescue agency said it would try to find more victims in smaller-scale operations. For full report read HERE.
After the unauthorized AirAsia’s flight QZ8501 crashed into Java Sea on 28-12-2014, Tony Fernandez, the CEO of AirAsia, have been tweeting to show his extreme concerns for the 162 innocent passengers and the AirAsia crews. We were so proud and touch with Tony Fernandez numerous tweets and for accompanying the remains of the AirAsia’s stewardess back to Palembang. The whole world was so impressed with the public relations of Tony Fernandez.
In his press conference on 31-12-2014, amongst other things Tony Fernandez had assured the families of the 162 innocent passengers and the world that he is an honest, open and responsible CEO. The whole world must have been equally impressed with the superb performance of Tony Fernandez. Please listen to the press conference of Tony Fernandez below. The excerpts of his assurances were as follows:
… I AM NOT WALKING AWAY FROM MY OBLIGATIONS. ALTHOUGH I DON’T KNOW WHAT WAS WRONG. THE PASSENGERS ARE ON MY AIRCRAFT. I HAD TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITIES FOR THAT. I HAVE TO TRY TO BE AS HONEST AS I CAN AND AS OPEN AS I CAN. …
Now that the Indonesian Military had announced that it has abandoned the search and rescue operations for the AirAsia’s aircraft (flight QZ8501), the world is awaiting to hear from Tony Fernandez, the most honest, open and responsible CEO of all times, what is he and his AirAsia’s outfits are going to do to help to alleviate the untold miseries of the families of the 162 innocent passengers that were killed on the unauthorized AirAsia’s flight QZ8501.
We note of a new report that AirAsia had earlier distributed form to each individual family of the innocent 162 victims and offered a compensation of a mere Rp300 million and they have been asked to sign the form of their agreement. Of course, the contents of this form had not been made public by AirAsia. However, luckily the families of the innocent victims have rejected such ridiculous offer outright.
President Jokowi of Indonesia had ordered AirAsia to pay the sum of Rp 1.2 billion (US$98,000) to each family of the victims. Thereafter, we have heard nothing positive from Tony Fernandez and/or AirAsia on the subject of compensations. In fact, Tony Fernandez was no longer tweeting about his extreme concerns for the families of the victims and/or the issues of compensation.
Tony Fernandez and/or AirAsia are duty bound to provide immediate answers to the issue of recovery of the remaining 92 bodies of the innocent passengers and the issue of compensations to the families of the innocent victims. Tony Fernandez, please put the money where your mouth is!
