Everyone Still Can Fly… Later
In an apparent encore, passengers were delayed for 8 hours on their AirAsia Jakarta-Balikpapan flight. At least this time, the passengers were notified by SMS – albeit on the same day, for some just before they checked in – that there would be an 8 hour delay due to engine repairs.It brings to mind the comparisons made between the AirAsia service with economy-class intercity buses: errant schedule, check. Food sold in the aisles, check. Seats that strain your back and cram your knees, check. Free seating that leads to a fight for life to get a good seat, check.
